What does the Recreation division offer?

The Recreation division of the Quality of Life department offers programs and services to youth, adults, and seniors through programming from our own staff, as well as independent contractors. We also offer the general public access to our parks and facilities for reservation. Our facilities are affordable, clean, and furnished with tables and chairs at no extra cost.

 

Who can come to the community center and senior centers?

The Recreation division offers programming for all ages. Patrons from other cities or counties, or even those visiting the City of Redlands temporarily are welcome.

 

How much does it cost to visit one of our community centers?

Our two senior centers, the Joslyn Senior Center and Community Senior Center are free to visit, though some programs require a small fee to help offset the cost of operating them. The Redlands Community Center requires an affordable annual membership fee of $10.00 a year for all youth patrons under 18 years of age. For adults, the fee is $25.00 per year for citizens of the City of Redlands and $35.00 for non-residents.

 

How does the Recreation division assist patrons who require financial assistance?

The staff at the Recreation division work hard every day at providing the highest quality programming at the most affordable price. To assist our patrons even further, the Joslyn Senior Center and Community Senior Center offers "Patron Cards" that give participating patrons access to programs and events at a discount.

The Redlands Community Center offers youth patrons under 18 years of age "scholarships" that provide an income-based discount to qualifying families. Please call us with any questions if you would like to inquire about receiving a scholarship for your child to participate in one or more of our programs.

 

How can I join the Recreation division as an instructor or volunteer?

The Recreation division is always accepting of the general public's assistance in providing programming, customer service, and other types of volunteer help. Because of the nature of our work, it is required that each individual submits an application, as well as pass a background check before beggining work with us.

The process for volunteers is seamless:

2.) Complete the online application at the City of Redlands Human Resources "Volunteer" page.

3.) Upon the completion of the application, the Human Resources department will notify you by phone or e-mail with instuctions on having your background check completed at no cost to you.

The process for instructors depends on several factors. Please call the Recreation division you would like to work with for more information regarding becoming an instructor.
