Our District History Project: The Southgate Chronicles documents the history of Southgate Recreation & Park District from its inception in 1956 to the present day. Thanks to all the board members, staff and general managers-current and former- who worked hard to make this project come to life. It has been nominated for the California Association of Park and Recreation District’s Outstanding Innovation Award 2022. As we wait to hear about the status of our award, take a walk down memory lane with us and peruse the history of the District! View here.
