Recreation Division

The Deer Park community center on E San Augustine is the heart of our Recreation program. Its location beside Dow Park makes it the perfect facility for events, and it hosts a number of classes for children and adults throughout the year. The gym, pool, and city hall are all conveniently located in the area surrounding the community center and Dow Park. The community center itself includes a game room equipped with video game consoles, and pool, air hockey, and ping pong tables.

Deer Park has 4 recreation centers in total. These facilities provide ample space for city activities and events. Summers feature extensive programming for children, including our day camp, Camp Crabgrass, cooking lessons, and art classes. Our year round family activities include holiday events like Fourth Fest and Easter Extravaganza, and outdoor adventures such as Family Camp Out.
