A Message from the Director of Community Services
On behalf of the City of Carson Community Services Department, happy spring! We hope your 2018 is off to a wonderful and exciting start!

Since spring is the season of new beginnings, we are proud to showcase this very first edition of the Recreation Guide in full color! In addition, this guide is available online through the main City of Carson website,

As we shift into the busiest time of the year, our Youth Sports Program gears up with its baseball, softball and tee-ball programming. I am especially pleased to announce we will be continuing our partnership with Major League Baseball to present the annual "Scott's Pitch, Hit and Run Competition." For more information on any of these programs, please contact your local park.

The City is always seeking volunteers to assist at a park or Human Services program. Please consider sharing your time, energy, and experience with your fellow residents. For more information and details on these opportunities, contact your local park or Human Services programs at (310) 835-0212.

Carson's commemoration of its milestone 50th Anniversary continues with its annual Youth Conference, Tribute to Cesar Chavez, Miss Carson Pageant, Memorial Day Celebration, and Cinco de Mayo. Jam-packed with amazing food, entertainment, and numerous activities, these programs are a great way to spend the day. We look forward to seeing you at these wonderful events!

I invite you to look over the extensive array of services and programs described in this Recreation Guide. Our offerings continue to grow and improve, providing the community with ample opportunities to get involved, learn a new skill or hobby, or meet new people. We are always interested in how we can serve you better. Please feel free to provide us with ideas and feedback at (310) 847-3570 or email

Have a great spring season and remember parks make life better!
