The JCSD Parks and Recreation Department has won numerous awards for various events and activities from the California Parks and Recreation Society. We hope that you and your family will join us each year for the annual events listed below.
Picnic in the Park
In 2018, Picnic In The Park will be held from June 22nd through June 24th at Eastvale Community Park. Each year thousands of people from the Inland Empire kick off the summer season at the annual Eastvale Picnic in the Park, a 3-day celebration hosted by the Jurupa Community Services District (JCSD) Parks and Recreation Department. Picnic in the Park started as a one-day celebration that was created by a dedicated group of Eastvale residents in 2004. As the event’s popularity grew, JCSD was asked to help grow the event which has turned into a pre-4th of July celebration, complete with a spectacular fireworks show that always takes place on the Saturday of the Picnic in the Park weekend.
65th Street LIVE!
Are you ready to rock n’ roll? If so, you better arrive early! Thousands of residents attend this free summer concert series. Popular tribute bands have attracted people of all ages to kick back and enjoy the music or hit the “dance floor” and show off their moves. The first summer concert coincides with the first day of Picnic in the Park event, which means you can start enjoying live music on the last Friday in June. Concerts then take place every Friday for a total of 10 free summer concerts.
July is Parks and Recreation Month
It’s July, do you know what that means? It’s time to enjoy the great outdoors with the JCSD Parks and Recreation Department in celebration of Parks Make Life Better!® Month in July. The statewide campaign, created by the California Park and Recreation Society (CPRS), unites 525 park and recreation agencies to spotlight parks as an essential place that enable residents to experience nature, sports, exercise, and other enjoyable activities hosted by agencies such as JCSD.
The community is invited to enjoy free activities for kids of all ages every Saturday and Wednesday where there will be giveaways and prizes. There is no additional cost to participate in July is Parks and Recreation Month. The latest flyer will be available here as we get closer to July.
Welcome the fall season with JCSD’s Annual Fall Festival. This event traditionally takes place on the first Saturday in October. The community is invited to enjoy a variety of merchandise and food vendors, arts and crafts, contests for children and adults, and live music. Activities include bobbing for apples, pumpkin rolling contest, pie eating contest, hay rides, a petting zoo, and other good old-fashioned family fun.
