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. Starting on Monday, August 28th, our office hours will be from 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. 
If you currently do not receive a brochure in the mail and would like to, please click here and choose Leisure Services Brochure Availability to be added to future mailing lists.
