DRD is an outgoing, active, energetic group of professionals, team members and volunteers. From all the volunteers to our valued Board of Directors members, each person contributes his and her special talents and experiences to help enrich the lives of District residents. Over the years, our commitment to integrity, teamwork, accessibility and excellence have resulted in numerous awards. We’ve also been honored to work closely with numerous world-class organizations such as the Disney Institute, Ken Blanchard Companies, American Red Cross and First Tee. This is just the beginning of our ongoing commitment to the communities we serve. Every day presents new opportunities for us to deliver fun as well as essential services, and every year brings new and exciting recreational possibilities. Come join in the fun!

“Like you, we all live, work and raise our families here in the Coachella Valley. So, not only do we help create meaningful programs for residents. We also participate with our families and individually. They call this work. But we make work fun.”

“Working for Desert Recreation District gives me an opportunity to meet people doing what they enjoy where they live and play, and I feel very fortunate to be a part of this community. We hope to enhance the lives of our guests through the programs and services we offer to all who want to join us in finding fun and community in the Coachella Valley.”
