NEW HOURS! In an effort to be a more accessible and equitable City department, the Leisure Services Department will be open later so that hopefully more individuals/families will have the opportunity to be served in-person. Our office hours are 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays. Administrative staff such as Managers and Program Supervisors may be available via phone as early as 8:00 a.m.
