Life is not a spectator sport! Join the fun. Fit a workout in, or relax in nature, while taking in the beauty of San Diego county. From backpacking, swimming and kayaking, to horseback riding, fishing and disc golf—it’s all possible in San Diego county parks.

View our seasonal program guides to learn about activities to suit all ages, interests and abilities. You can also make reservations, or plan a wedding or special event at a number of locations. We hope to see you at one of our beautiful parks, or out on one of our scenic trails!

A place for teens, the Lakeside and Spring Valley REC Clubs demonstrate how to make a positive difference in the lives of youth, providing opportunities for middle and high school teens to grow through physical fitness, field trips, art expression and leadership.

Team sports are a great way to get in shape and meet new people. Sport facilities throughout the County include ball fields, sports courts, gymnasiums, and a roller hockey rink. Visit our sports facilities page for a full list of facilities with contact, location and reservation information.

Community Centers provide preschool, youth, adult and senior programs, along with listings for special interest courses, family activities, sports and special events. Our community centers are located strategically in three areas: Fallbrook, Lakeside and Spring Valley.
