Antioch has so much to offer residents of every age! Explore a new park, take a class, plan a day at the water park, volunteer, or support a local event.  The Recreation Guide is your go-to book for year round activities – searching for something new and exciting is easy.  Stay connected with family and friends through recreation and park activities, and give back to the community by participating in volunteer efforts.  Let us help you discover Antioch all over again.

Our mission is to unify and strengthen the Antioch community by creating quality experiences that inspires lifelong learning. A dedicated team of staff provides programs and services for youth and family enrichment, health and fitness, sports and recreation, and senior citizens. We work side-by-side with the parks and public works staff to keep parks and facilities well-maintained, and we support the community in many civic activities and events.
