Pasadena’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department (PRCS) takes advantage of summer evenings by activating park spaces that provide youth and their families opportunities to experience healthy recreation and active lifestyles. Programming is led by PRCS with support from partners including various city departments like Police, Fire and Public Health, and several community-based organizations including the Armory Center for the ArtsDay One and Let’s Teach.

“We invite everyone to participate in Parks After Dark this summer,” said Brenda Harvey-Williams, director of the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department. “We’re proud to open our parks to encourage healthy living and provide fun, free, family-friendly activities throughout the city.”
