Community Services

Department Responsibilities

The Community Services Department (formerly known as Parks and Recreation) provides programs and facilities to meet the recreation and leisure needs of the community. The department administers the use of and maintains several park and athletic facilities in the City, and provides programs for all ages in a wide range of interests and activities.

The department operates facilities at local schools through a joint use agreement with the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District.

Department staff provides administrative support to the Malibu Arts Commission, Harry Barovsky Memorial Youth Commission, and the Parks and Recreation Commission.

Recreation Guide & Newsletter

The Community Services Department publishes the City’s quarterly Recreation Guide and Newsletter that details upcoming programs and facility hours of operation. The Guide also includes informative articles and contact information for City departments and services.

For the most up-to-date information on Community Services programs visit Aquatics, Community Classes, and the Virtual Recreation Center.  

The City will continue to abide by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health guidelines related to Day Camps.  Masks and distancing are required.
