HOURS: Our office is open Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., including the lunch hour.

However, many of our programs are able to be accessed online.

LIONS CLUB COMMUNITY DOG PARK
Thanks to a generous donation from Reedley Lions Club, the new dog park is now open in Mueller Park, directly behind the basketball court. Bring your dog for a run or to socialize with other dogs.

RECREATION SOFTWARE MAKES REGISTRATION MORE CONVENIENT!
The Community Services staff is very excited to announce that the City of Reedley has implemented Recreation Software effective January 2, 2018. This allows for easy registration from anywhere. Staff has been gearing up for this new step for a few months and are excited that it has started! Users now have the ability to register for classes, sports leagues, swim lessons, etc. from the comfort of their own home.
All customers need to set up an account, which can be done from a smart phone or computer. This process should only take about 5 minutes. Logins can be completed via a Facebook sign in or by creating your own login. In addition to the ease of signing up and paying for programs, the software allows the City to stay in touch with customers via email and text message updates for reminders, closure information or other important announcements.
Kiosks are also available in the Community Services Office at the Reedley Community Center to set up your account. Staff is available to assist you.

The Reedley Parkway corridor/bike and pedestrian trail project is a continuous 2.6 mile, multi-use, non-motorized, tree-lined transportation corridor constructed on railbanked railroad right-of-way. The corridor ranges in widths from seventy-five feet (75') to one hundred feet (100') and follows a clearly defined route which extends in a northwest to southeast direction through the center of the City.
Senior Citizens
Our Leisure Guide explains most of our ongoing Senior Programs, but the best way to find out what is going on in our Senior Department is to drop by the Phil Hudson Room on the north end of the Community Center to find out first hand what we have to offer local seniors. A lunch program, classes, and a variety of trips are planned on a regular basis.
