Parks & Recreation Master Plan Development

The City of Downey is currently working with RJM Design Group in preparing a Parks and Recreation Master Plan that will guide the community's recreation activities, facilities and programs for the next 10 years.  To learn more about the Master Plan, please click here.

Recreation Facilities

The Parks and Recreation Department provides supervision at various parks during the school year. Residents are encouraged to visit the parks and use the many facilities: ball diamonds, play equipment, fitness courses, basketball courts, picnic shelters and more. Alcohol is not permitted at any park site.

Facility Reservations Policy

There are Recreation facilities which may be reserved by Downey or non-Downey residents, depending on facility site, and community groups: picnic shelters, ball diamonds, meeting rooms and banquet size rooms. Reservations are taken Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, and must be made two weeks in advance (10) working days. For fee schedule and additional information, phone the Parks and Recreation Department.

Note: Reservations for the Apollo Park McCaughan Gymnasium (562-904-7128) and Community/Senior Center (562 904-7223) will be taken at those facilities.
