The Community Services Department delivers a significant portion of the services and programs rendered directly to the residents of the City of Carson. The Department is spearheaded by the Director, with support from the Senior Administrative Analyst and the Administrative Secretary. The Director ensures that all services and programs provided by the Department meet the social and recreational needs of Carson's diverse community. Community Services is comprised of three divisions: Community Center, Transportation, and Recreation and Human Services.

Welcome to the Spring Edition
of the City of Carson's Community Services Guide!
Welcome to the Spring Edition of the City of Carson's Recreation Guide!

The City of Carson Community Services Department strives to strengthen our community's fabric, health, and well-being. Our goal is to improve the lives of our citizens and the community as a whole by providing services, events, and positive programming for all ages and abilities that provide access to the serenity and inspiration of nature; outdoor space to play and exercise; facilities for self-directed and organized recreation; positive alternatives for youth which help lower crime and mischief, and activities that facilitate social connections, human development, therapy, the arts, and lifelong learning.

As the season changes and shifts to spring, we would like to encourage all residents and community members to take advantage of our programs and activities. We offer a state accredited after-school program at seven of our community parks for parents who need assistance with child care. Spring is also when baseball, softball, and t-ball start up. Last day to signup is Saturday, February 23, 2019. For more information, contact your local park.

The City of Carson and our department pride themselves on offering various special community events through the year. We are presenting events such as the Tribute to Cesar E. Chavez, Earth Day, Cinco de Mayo Celebration, and the Memorial Day Tribute.

As we continue to work toward serving the Carson community better, we welcome any comments or suggestions you may have. Please feel free to contact us at 370-847-3570.

Have a great spring, and remember that Parks Make Life Better!
