How was the Cordova Recreation and Park District (CRPD) established?

Cordova Recreation and Park District (CRPD) was formed in 1958 to provide parks and recreation services to the residents of the Rancho Cordova area. The functions of the District were to develop and monitor the budget, carry out the policies of the Board, and oversee the daily operations of the District. A resolution was adopted in the fall of 1959 annexing additional territory in accordance with boundary recommendations of the County.

Are you affiliated of the City of Rancho Cordova?

The Cordova Recreation and Park District is an independent, special district agency. We are a separate entity from the City of Rancho Cordova; however, because our boundaries cover such a large area, we do work in partnership with the City of Rancho Cordova, the County of Sacramento, and the Cordova Community Council as well as the Folsom Cordova, San Juan, Sacramento, and Elk Grove Unified School Districts. Our District is guided by an independently elected, five-member Board of Directors.

What other community organizations do you work with?

Because CRPD’s boundaries cover such a large area, we are in a unique position to work with a variety of organizations not only in Rancho Cordova but in other areas of Sacramento County. Currently we work in partnership with the City of Rancho Cordova, the County of Sacramento, and the Cordova Community Council as well as the Folsom Cordova, San Juan, Sacramento, and Elk Grove Unified School Districts. We also work closely with several community associations and other local government agencies. Some organizations we work with are located in our parks; the Sacramento Valley Live Steamers Railroad Museum and the Hagan Park Petting Barn are two examples.

Parks and Recreation

 

Do I have to reserve space or have a special permit to conduct business (not affiliated with CRPD) on CRPD property?

A permit is required for any business conducted on CRPD property and for all continued regular use of CRPD parks. For those wishing to utilize a portion of space in a CRPD park for commercial and/or regular, ongoing use (i.e. boot camps, fitness classes, etc.), please complete the commercial use application and submit for consideration. Requirements, fees, information and where to remit are listed on the application. Click here to down the Commercial Use Application.

Do I have to reserve space at neighborhood parks for picnics and parties?

Neighborhood park use is on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are certain parks that require advanced reservation of picnic areas. Reservations need to be made no less than 4 business days prior to the reservation date. Most pavilion and covered picnic areas also require advanced reservation. You can inquiry about a space or reserve a picnic area by calling (916) 842-3300.

Does CRPD have a dog park?

CRPD currently operates one dog park. It is located inside Hagan Park past the kiosk area. The dog park features off-leash run areas, doggy drinking fountains, and other special canine amenities. While all other CRPD parks are dog-friendly, our four-legged friends must be kept on a leash at all other park sites. Dog owners are responsible for cleaning up after their dog at all of our facilities. At this time, CRPD is not providing doggie clean up bags, so owners will need to come to the park with a baggie for waste removal.

You can call or visit any one of our 4 centers (CRPD District Office, Riverview Community Center, Cordova Senior Activities Center, or Mather Sports Center) to request a refund. However, failure to attend a class or “no shows” will not be granted a refund.
