Community Services Recreation Administration provides leadership, management, and coordination for the varied Community Services programs aimed at enhancing the "Quality of Life" for all residents of the City of Perris through recreation, sports, leisure, cultural and educational activities. Community services are provided by three divisions:
- Leisure Services
The function of the Leisure Services division is to plan and implement a variety of year round recreational programs and special events, so that the citizens of Perris may enjoy a safe and rewarding leisure time experience. City parks and community facilities are filled with recreation classes, rentals, and special events. A variety of classes are offered including arts and crafts, dance classes, fitness and life enrichment programs.
This program provides for recreational and competitive sports programming at a variety of City and satellite sites. Responsibilities of this division include coordination of the Sports Commissioners monthly meetings which includes such organizations as the Perris Inter-Soccer League, AYSO, Perris Valley Youth Association Pony Baseball, Jr. All American Patriot Football, and Major League Softball. The division assists these groups with facility reservations, maintenance issues, and technical support. The Sports Department also runs their own PeeWee, Mighty Mite, and Youth sports year round including T-ball, soccer, and basketball.
- Senior Services
The Senior Center has been designated as a nutrition site by the County of Riverside Office on Aging. This designation allows the City to provide a daily meal program for seniors and as a resource to obtain information and access to services for seniors. A wide variety of activities are coordinated with various public agencies such as the Perris Valley Senior's Incorporated, AARP, Inland County Legal Services, Second Harvest Food Bank, and Family Services Association. This division also coordinates senior trips and tours. Participants are exposed to fine arts, museums, theater, and natural settings that are both educational and social opportunities. A day trip is scheduled once a month to Soboba Casino on the second Friday of the month.
- Teen Center Game Zone
When the Senior Center closes for seniors, it re-opens for teens. Students can finish their homework, read, visit their friends or spend time watching television and chatting. They can move to the beat of a virtual workout. They can work on computers but those will be monitored to keep students away from any inappropriate content.
