Parks

The City has 66 city parks and many open spaces maintained by licensed landscape contractors. City parks range from two-acre neighborhood sites to 64-acre community parks. City parks offer a wide range of activities – from picnic areas, game courts, swimming pools, ball diamonds, soccer fields, tot lots, fountains, tennis courts, and more.  View the Parks Map for additional information and park locations.

 

About half of the City parks have restroom facilities.  Some larger sites have community centers and others have larger complexes, such as Oak Park's Billy Hebert Field and Pixie Woods at Louis Park.

 

Water Conservation

The City of Stockton is making every effort to reduce water usage during the 2015 warm weather season. Consistent with State water conservation regulations, all City parks, street landscaping and open space areas have been programmed to irrigate two days per week. Irrigation is to be completed by 6 a.m. Monday and Thursday mornings. Larger sites will start watering at 10 p.m. the night before. Interactive fountains will not be in operation this season. However, the Weber Event Center fountain will be in operation since it works on a recirculating system.

 

The City's parks and landscape irrigation systems are extensive, with tens of thousands of sprinklers that can break or malfunction.  We have dedicated staff and contractors monitoring our systems, but your help is always welcome.  Report an irrigation problems by calling the Municipal Service Center.
