What we do
The Parks, Recreation & Libraries mission is to enhance lives and the community by providing exceptional experiences.
Everything the Parks, Recreation & Libraries department does contributes to the community’s health and wellness. The Department promotes physical activity through participation in recreation programs and visits to local trails, parks, and playgrounds. The Department promotes social and emotional wellness through interaction with others at PRL organized activities. “Be Well Roseville”, a new citywide wellness initiative, has engaged hundreds of residents and promoted physical activity, good nutrition, and mind/ body renewal. Mental and intellectual wellness services are provided at libraries. PRL is an important partner in the City’s efforts to address homelessness, cleaning hundreds of camps, and removing hundreds of tons of hazardous debris from our open spaces each year, protecting humans and the environment.
The Department is instrumental in advancing sports tourism opportunities through its many sports facilities that draw league and tournament play. Planning is underway for the Roseville Soccer Complex in West Roseville. Improvements to existing PRL sports facilities and this new Complex will attract visitors to Roseville. Also enhancing the City’s economic vitality, PRL’s efforts increase home values; parks and open spaces improve air and water quality; and, quality parks, recreation, and libraries systems attract businesses, talented workers, and new residents.
A variety of educational and cultural programs are offered at the PRL’s three libraries and at Maidu Museum & Historic Site, focusing on literacy, early learning, Maidu cultural and natural resources. The libraries continue to lend both print and electronic materials, and utilize technology to deliver efficient services to every member of the community.
