ABOUT

The Department of Youth, Parks, & Community Enrichment offers an array of diverse programs, services and facilities to the residents of our city and the broader Sacramento community.
The Department prides itself in the many partnerships and collaborations with other governmental agencies, school districts, community-based organizations, neighborhood groups and the business sector for delivery of programs that serve our shared constituents. Only a third of the Department’s $32+ million operating budget is from the General Fund of the City. Grants, participant fees and support from the business community comprise significant sources of additional funding.
