Every experience comes with a story and behind every story is a resident.  The City of Ventura’s Parks, Recreation & Community Partnerships works hard to provide our residents with safe spaces to play, explore, discover and create. Every day our residents participate in programming, services, and events in our community and out of these experiences come their stories.  

We would love to hear about YOUR parks, recreation and/or public art story and feature it in an upcoming publication!  Please submit your story through our online form  or  email it to [email protected].
