Community & Citizen Partnerships

The Recreation Department is proud of its collaborations with local business and community members. With the support of our citizens and business community, the recreation staff is able to expand many of its programs that are offered to the community. Partnering can be accomplished in several different ways with contributions to specific events, programs, and scholarships for both young and old.

If you have an idea for a new program, class, event, or activity, please don't hesitate to contact our staff to see how we can help. We're constantly looking for new programming opportunities to make our community better. We invite you to be involved in a partnership with the El Cerrito Recreation Department.
