We miss you already!  With all the program cancellations and facility closures, along with the "shelter at home" order statewide, we here at the Hesperia Recreation and Park District want to make sure you still have access to plenty of things to do to keep your mind and body active and having FUN!

Check-in for updates; we will add to this list as we find more to do.  If you come across anything you'd like to add, send it to us at (redacted)!

Scroll down for Community Resources we've found so far, and please share with us if you know of any we've missed.
