San Joaquin County Parks and Recreation:

Budget Challenges and Matters of Trust

The San Joaquin County park system is a treasure for the enjoyment of all the citizens of the County.


The Parks Trust Funds have been depleted to the point where they can no longer provide the level of support needed to maintain the park system. The Board of Supervisors and the Parks and Recreation Division need to develop and implement a plan for managing the park system within a structurally balanced and sustainable budget. Only then can these trust funds be replenished and begin again to provide support for the growth and improvement of the County park system.
