Welcome to the City of Antioch’s Recreation Department!

Antioch has so much to offer residents of every age! Explore a new park, take a class, plan a day at the water park, volunteer, or support a local event.  The Recreation Guide is your go-to book for year round activities – searching for something new and exciting is easy.  Stay connected with family and friends through recreation and park activities, and give back to the community by participating in volunteer efforts.  Let us help you discover Antioch all over again.

Our mission is to unify and strengthen the Antioch community by creating quality experiences that inspires lifelong learning. A dedicated team of staff provides programs and services for youth and family enrichment, health and fitness, sports and recreation, and senior citizens. We work side-by-side with the parks and public works staff to keep parks and facilities well-maintained, and we support the community in many civic activities and events.

On June 15th, the California Department of Public Health has moved “Beyond the Blueprint” for a safer economy,  which relaxed mask guidance and eliminated physical distancing, capacity limits, and the color tier system. The City of Antioch will be opening facilities to the public in phases. Currently, masks are still required while indoors in all City facilities for everyone. All members of the public must also sign in at each facility indicating that they are free from COVID symptoms and have not had close contact with anyone displaying symptoms or are known to have tested positive.

The Antioch Community Center is currently open to the public.

The Water Park is now open for General Admission.

The Nick Rodriguez Community Center continues to operate as a vaccine clinic for the county.

The Antioch Senior Center opened in mid-August.
