Parks Department

The Pleasant Valley Recreation and Park District’s Parks Department is dedicated to providing the community with safe, enjoyable parks and recreation venues. Our goal is to develop, create and maintain parks and facilities that serve the needs of District residents and the surrounding community.

With a staff of approximately 35 employees, the Park Department maintains over 300 acres of parkland, open space and recreation areas that provide a wide array of opportunities for area residents. From passive picnic areas, walking paths and equestrian arenas to athletic fields, a community pool, waterslide and splash pad, District staff is responsible for maintaining and managing the entire gambit of parks and facilities.

Along with maintaining our beautiful surroundings, the District’s Park Patrol Program works with the local law enforcement and the City of Camarillo to help provide a safe community. To find out more about the Park Patrol Program click here.

The District has hundreds of reservations for outdoor picnic sites annually, along with thousands of rental for indoor facilities. Reservation information for these sites identify that an average of 75,000+ users visit our pay for use sites.
