The hours we are open varies by facility location, activity, and other items such as time of year and special events. Due to all the variations, we recommend calling our Administrative Office at 760-347-3484 to check the hours we are open in any particular area.


For the majority of our programs and events, you can register online on this website and select the activity for which you want to register. You can also stop by any of our community centers or our Administrative office to register  Payment can be made online via credit card, or if you register in-person, you may pay by credit card, check, or cash.  All payments must be made in full at the time of registration.

District Residency/Fees

To determine if your residence falls within the District boundaries, please call (760) 347-3484 where you can also inquire about fees for our programs and classes for non-District residents.

Refund/Proration/Make-up policy

Refunds are only given if Desert Recreation District cancels a program or class. We are sorry; however, we cannot offer make-up classes or prorated fees for missed classes if you cannot attend them all as we have reserved a spot for you, and possibly turned others away based on your enrollment.


At this time, we are not able to offer discounts for additional family members such as second and third children in our after school programs as we strive to provide the best value to all of our guests.  Therefore, we have set our prices at the best price-point we can offer, which does not allow for discounting.

All photographs and videos, whether digital or hard copy, will remain property of DRD and may be used for publicity or promotional purposes only.
