Featuring Our Reycled Water Efforts!

As California endures another year without water, Pleasant Hill Recreation & Park District continues to find ways to balance water conservation with our goal to provide you the finest parks possible.

Fortunately, our major facilities, Pleasant Hill Park, Pleasant Oaks Park, Chilpancingo Park, College Park High fields, Valley View Middle School, Senior Center and the Community Center utilize reclaimed water, allowing us to keep the landscaping alive in those locations and fields green and in playable condition.

In some parks however, we will drastically reduce irrigation in an effort to preserve this precious resource. This means these parks may look a little different. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we weather through the current drought.

If you have any questions about the District water use in our parks and landscape areas, please contact Tom Bradley, Park Superintendent at (925) 671-4649 or
