Welcome to the Tehachapi Valley Recreation & Park District!

TVRPD district boundariesSince 1958, the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Park District has been committed to providing high quality recreation and parks facilities to the Greater Tehachapi Area. Yet many of us may not realize that every day, countless numbers of people of all ages enjoy Tehachapi Valley’s parks, trails, pool, and recreation centers. Local and regional studies show that many park users do not understand the value this brings to our community’s quality of life, thus we at TVRPD feel a responsibility to close that gap—and to inspire more people to learn why a quality recreation and parks system is central to youth development, active senior living, neighborhoods and families, special places and community events, and economic development. Most of all, we want to inspire you to enjoy the opportunities we offer. To do this in a cost-efficient and accessible way, we’ve launched a new state-of-the-art website affording you to everything you’d like to know about recreation and parks systems in the Greater Tehachapi Area.

More easily than ever before you can find a park, see a trails map, check pool hours, sign up for a fitness or wellness class, register for one of our many programs and events, inquire about volunteer opportunities, and support present and future recreation and parks throughout the Greater Tehachapi Area. As “ambassadors of community wellness and active living” we at TVRPD know that efficient accessibility to positive, life-long experiences through inclusive recreational programming, events and parks are key to patron participation and community wellness. In response to this the TVRPD website affords 24 hour/7 day a week remote registration and secure online payments, whenever it is convenient to you, the park patron. In addition to rapid registration to programs, events and classes, patron’s can change or drop classes, request refunds and manage their accounts online.  Through the TVRPD website the registration process is expedited and once you are in the system all subsequent registrations are simplified and rapid. Additionally email and physical addresses collected in the registration process affords the patron rapid updates on upcoming programs, classes, and events as well as closures and cancelations. Virtually everything about your recreation and parks system is here at your fingertips via home computer, laptop, iPad or smartphone! We intend to add even more interactive features to add convenience, expand accessibility and inspire stewardship.

As our community grows, so does demand for beautiful public places. Even with shrinking operational budgets, TVRPD staff remains committed to being accessible to you through our website and providing high quality park facilities and diverse recreation programs that everyone can enjoy. Be sure to bookmark on your computers and mobile devices. And please check back often and discover how the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Park District makes life better in the Greater Tehachapi Area! Play Up! Live Up!
