The Folsom Parks & Recreation Department offers endless opportunities for exciting, enriching activities for the entire family. There’s never been a better time to get outside and get active in Folsom!

Our city’s 48 beautiful parks and 50+ miles of paved recreational trails provide ample opportunities to enjoy Folsom’s stunning natural setting. Visit your neighborhood park to kick back with a family picnic, or relax in the shade at one of our covered picnic areas. If you’re more interested in working up a sweat, opt for a nature hike, bike ride, or a meet-up with friends at our many sports courts.

We also invite you to spend an afternoon at our newest park, the Broder Family Homestead Park. The five-acre park celebrates the life of early California pioneers and ranchers, including the Broder family, and features many unique amenities.

Looking to pick up a new skill or make new friends? Try one of our classes, camps, activities, or events.
