Welcome to the San Rafael Recreation & Child Care Division

COVID-19 Service Modifications

During the current public health crisis, the City of San Rafael remains committed to protecting the health and safety of community members and employees, while also striving to deliver public services to the greatest extent possible.

We are currently adapting and developing programs based on guidelines from the County Public Health Officer.  These guidelines are updated regularly, and we are working to keep our program offerings up-to-date and to safely fit the needs of our community.

We are currently offering both virtual and in-person summer camps and are starting to re-launch more classes. Additionally, we are renting outdoor spaces for groups that want to host recreation classes outdoors. Please click on the links below for more details on these programs.

We are also excited to announce that the Terra Linda Community Pool will be opened for limited programming starting on July 6. Please visit our pools page for more information.

Your toddlers will love spending time with you in Jumping Jacks class, or perhaps they’re interested in dance class or maybe they’d like to try Taekwondo.

We offer a variety of classes that will help your children build their skills, improve focus and gain confidence.

Try your hand at Japanese flower arranging, learn ceramics or take up Pilates. From sports leagues to tennis lessons, we have a program for you.

Our Aquatics program offers swim classes and lessons for all ages.

Our Older Adults programs offer various activities such as classes, luncheons, membership meetings, bingo games, dances, special events and trips.

You can also check out our Virtual Recreation Center, which provides fun and educational activities at home.
