Volunteers Needed!

We are looking for eager individuals to become volunteer Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches for our upcoming Youth Basketball League. No previous coaching experience required, and time commitments will consist of a one-hour weeknight practice, and one game each Saturday. A great way to make a positive impact for the youth of the community!

North Highlands Narrative 

North Highlands Narrative is a citizen award program sponsored by the North Highlands Recreation and Park District. Its purpose is to shine light on our everyday citizens and local organizations that make a positive impact within the community through acts of service or events.

On a quarterly basis awards are given to citizens or community groups residing within NHRPD’s District for their outstanding contributions to the community. Please consider taking the time to recognize and nominate an individual or group whose contributions make North Highlands a better place to live.

Do you know someone that should be nominated? Submit your nomination by January 6th to be considered!

Please join the conversation and help shape the future of our park system!

Our Final Draft Meeting for our Park Master Plan will be held on December 14 at 6:30pm during the NHRPD Board of Directors meeting at the Recreation Center (6040 Watt Avenue).  This is an important document to our District as it will map out the plans for parks and recreation programming for the next 10+ years.
