The Park District’s New Foundation “Mountain Recreation Park Foundation”
Do you care about your community’s parks, public facilities, and recreational opportunities? Do you want to be involved?
We are currently taking applications for those interested in serving on the Board of Directors for the Mountain Recreation Park Foundation 501c3. If interested or if you would like information, please fill out the submission form online, www.rim-rec.org and staff will contact you.
The Park District winterization includes turning off the water at our various outdoor bathrooms, parks, and ball field locations. This is done to prevent pipes from freezing and breaking. We understand we may still have great weather to play outside, and all fields and other outdoor amenities can still be reserved, but the Park District will not turn the water on for these private outdoor events.
In an effort to keep our parks and facilities in the best condition possible, there are times when we need to close certain areas. The purpose of this is to prevent damage, allow the grounds a break, and/or to perform maintenance. All of these things are done with YOU in mind. Please pay attention to which areas are open and closed and please respect the signs we have posted.
All facility rentals are available online with the new online recreation system. Go to www.rim-rec.org and click on the “register online” tab on the top navigation panel. There you first create an account by adding your information. Once you hit complete a verification email will be sent to your inbox. Follow the directions in that email and you will be able to access Park District services such as facility rentals and program registrations anytime. If you have any questions, please contact the district office, (909) 337-7275 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

What does that mean?
Rim of the World Recreation and Park District is an independent special district sanctioned under California Law for the performance of local government functions. Special Districts range in size from very small to very large. The Rim of the World Recreation and Park District is a smaller Independent special district that operates on a budget of $1.162 million (only 2/3 of which is provided by a $22 annual per-parcel property tax, the remainder needing to come from use fees) yet serves a vast area of 110 square miles. What’s so special? Focused services. Special Districts like the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District were formed to deliver specific public services within defined boundaries.
Responsibility to Provide a Wide Variety of Services
Since the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District is located in a resort area, our services are not limited to just locals and/or permanent residents or part-time residents, but to all who visit the mountain communities. Even those residents not located within our boundaries, but who own property in our mountain community can benefit from the use of our services. Unlike other Special Districts, our mandate and the services provided have resulted in a great range of opportunities for public recreation.
Benefits of Special Districts
According to the State Legislative Analyst, independent special districts have consistently shown the slowest rate of spending growth for local governments. We believe this is due to the high degree of accountability to the public and to the specific nature of the services provided by special districts. In the case of the Rim of the World Recreation and Park District, it’s due also to our fixed-rate tax source that does not adjust for inflation but must be supplemented by increasing efficiency and other measures. The Rim of the World Recreation and Park District is considered an independent special district because we are directly accountable to our constituents, not another layer of local government and have an elected board that sets policy.
Districts Make the Difference
California special districts are much more than local service providers. These local agencies enable their constituents to have local control and are passionate about providing high-quality services and resources in the most efficient and effective manner. Find out more about the impact special districts are having and how they benefit the millions of Californians who use their services.
