What is Southgate Recreation & Park District?
Southgate Recreation & Park District (SRPD) is an independent special district as authorized through California State Public Resources Code Section 5780 in 1956, governed by an elected five-member Board of Directors. It is a local government agency established to serve the residents of South Sacramento.
For over fifty years Southgate Recreation & Park District has been acquiring and developing parks and recreational facilities. The District encompasses a 52-square mile area of unincorporated South Sacramento County. In this area, the District currently maintains 47 parks, 6 community centers, 2 aquatic facilities and numerous landscape corridors and nature preserves. The District’s primary goal and its public charge is to provide recreation and park services to the 120,000 residents it serves. We employ professional management and staff who manage the diverse services and facilities for the South Sacramento community.
Over the next twenty years we expect to add approximately 500 acres of park land and green space as new subdivision development occurs. Our strong tradition of Parks, Programs & Partnerships will continue to guide us, enabling us to continue serving the park and recreation needs of our socially, economically and culturally diverse community.
Our mission is: A commitment to provide positive recreational opportunities, safe and attractive parks and open spaces, resulting in a healthier community.
The District lies east of Sacramento, south of Rancho Cordova and north of Elk Grove. Our eastern boundary extends to Grant Line Road. Click here to view the California Special District Association mapping program.
