Parks After Dark takes advantage of our beautiful summer evenings by activating park spaces that provide youth and their families opportunities to experience healthy recreation and active lifestyles. Programming is led by PRCS with strong support from partners including various City departments like Police, Fire and Public Health, and several community-based organizations including the Armory Center for the Arts, Day One and Let’s Teach.

“We invite everyone to participate in Parks After Dark this summer,” said Brenda Harvey-Williams, director of the Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department. “We’re proud to open our parks to encourage healthy living and provide fun, free, family-friendly activities throughout the city.”

All activities are free. Pre-registration at cityofpasasdena.net/reserve is recommended; on-site registration will also be available.
