Mission Statement

The mission of the Auburn Area Recreation and Park District is to provide an excellent system of parks, recreation facilities, programs and services that enrich the lives, health and happiness of our citizens.

Facilities / Customer Service

ARD has a variety of facilities available to rent by the public. There are various sized rooms for businesses, classes, staff retreats, meetings, and parties (see indoor rentals). Group picnic areas and the pools can be reserved for family reunions, company picnics, birthdays, and youth groups. Gyms and athletic fields can be reserved for use by your group. For more information see the amenities at the individual park. Visit the forms section of our website for indoor and/or outdoor rental applications. For availability call our Customer Service office 530.885.8461, option 6.

ARD Refund Policy

Full refunds will be issued only if ARD cancels a class or activity. Full credit on account (good towards another ARD class, program or activity), will be given on customer cancellations received 72 hours prior to the first class. Failure to attend a class or “no shows” will not be granted a credit. If you are not satisfied with any of our programs, please contact the program supervisor. All refunds will come in the form of a check. Please allow 3 – 4 weeks processing time. Visit our website for Discovery Club/Day Camp refund policies.

Auburn Recreation District encourages those with disabilities to participate in our programs. ARD will make all reasonable efforts to provide accommodations in programs, facilities and services. Staff is available to meet with anyone having special needs or concerns regarding accessibility. Call 530.863.4615.

Youth Assistance Fund

In an effort to see every child in our district participate in our recreational programs, ARD has established the Youth Assistance Fund. The Youth Assistance Fund provides program scholarships to assist lower income individuals and families. Applications for the Youth Assistance Fund, including income eligibility guidelines, can be obtained from our Customer Service Office or the forms section on our website.

The Youth Assistance Fund is for individuals living in and out of the district boundaries, as funding is available. Individuals or organizations interested in donating to our Youth Assistance Fund through Friends of The Auburn Area Recreation and Parks, Inc. (501 C3) should contact the Recreation Services Manager at 530.863.4615.
