Parks & Recreation Commission


The Parks & Recreation Commission is responsible for reviewing and recommending plans for the development of the City's parks, recreation facilities, programs, and services in the City. The Commission also establishes working relationships with the South Coast YMCA and Capistrano Unified School District to maximize the coordination of programs and use of facilities.


The Commission meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers. However, from December 7, 2022 to early April 2023, the Council Chambers at City Hall will be closed for the City Council Chamber Improvements Project. All City Council, Commission, and Committee meetings will be held at the Crown Valley Community Center (29751 Crown Valley Pkwy), with the exception of the Senior Citizens Committee Meetings, which will continue to be held at Sea Country Senior & Community Center (24602 Aliso Creek Rd).
