Director of Community Services
Welcome to the Fall edition
of the City of Carson's Community Services 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 positive programming alternatives for both youth and adults to help with social connection and life-long learning.

As the season changes and shifts to fall, 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. Fall is also flag-football, soccer, and softball season. 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. The fall season is one of our busiest seasons when it comes to special community events. We are presenting the Hispanic Heritage Celebration, Jazz Festival, Filipino American History Kickoff Month, Women's Health Conference, Think Pink Breast Cancer Walk, Halloween Carnival & Dia de los Muertos, and Veterans Day.

Happy 40th Birthday to the Fabela Chavez Boxing Center! Located at Scott Park, the Boxing Center has hosted many professional, amateurs, coaches, and fighters throughout the years. To help celebrate this momentous occasion, we are pleased to present the always popular, "Friday Night at the Fights" on October 12, 2018. For more information on this program or the Boxing Center, please call (310) 830-6439.

As we continue to work toward serving the Carson community better, we welcome any comments or suggestions you may have. Please feel free contact us at (310) 847-3570 or email Have a great Fall, and remember that parks make life better!
