"Together we strive to be the heart of the community by providing enriching opportunities through dedicated people, beautiful parks and inspiring programs."
In addition to operating and maintaining 41 public parks and facilities as well as a public golf course, the Parks and Recreation Department maintains most of the publicly-owned landscaped areas and parkway trees throughout the City. The Department also provides recreation service programs that include special interest classes; youth and adult sports programs; day camps; afterschool programs; youth resource programs; environmental and educational nature programs; cultural arts activities, including visual and performing arts; commercial recreation services; volunteer programs for residents of all ages; and year-round special events. The Department also provides a variety of senior and human service programs. The Parks and Recreation Board, Senior Citizen Board, Art in Public Places Committee, Burbank Cultural Arts Commission and Youth Board, as well as a number of other advisory boards and committees, work in an advisory capacity with Department staff, cooperatively striving to identify and meet the recreational and human service needs of the Burbank community.
