Welcome to Red Bluff Parks & Recreation


Our Recreation department is committed to providing fun and affordable activities in and around our park facilities year-round. From tiny tots to seniors, we offer activities that suit all age groups and skill levels.  Learn something new, hone an old skill, connect with people, or enjoy the outdoors!

The functions of the Department are to provide opportunities for wholesome year-round public recreation service for each age group and to develop and maintain in an attractive and safe manner the parks and recreation areas and facilities of the city, and to ensure that the facilities are suitable for a wide variety of recreation purposes.

Would you like to give back to the community? Many of our parks and facilities are enhanced through contributions from members of our community. If you would like to make a donation to improve our parks or facilities, please call (530) 527-8177.
