A host of parks, recreation classes, youth activities, special events, senior services and much more are offered through the Temple City Parks and Recreation Department. The city’s two beautifully maintained parks are Temple City Park and Live Oak Park. Temple City Park is home to the Performing Arts Pavilion, a community room, playground and picnic shelter, and hosts community events such as Temple City’s Concerts in the Park and Lights on Temple City. Live Oak Park consists of a playground, lighted athletic fields, picnic shelters, basketball and tennis courts and a Community Center and Annex. These generous green spaces are much more than just recreation areas—they are the soul of the city, where much of community and family life occurs.

An extraordinary array of recreational classes is available for people of all ages and abilities. The class schedule includes recreation for tots, aerobics, cardio-kickboxing, tap and ballet, gymnastics, tennis, self-defense, ballroom dancing, flower arranging and “mini-sports” such as T-ball and flag football. Youth have access to many activities—day trips, teen dances, summer camps and an auxiliary dance/drill team are just some of the opportunities afforded to young Temple City citizens.

Older adults are presented with a diversity of programs and services to enhance their lives. Information and referrals, in-home assistance, housing, immunizations, recreation and transportation are all readily accessible in Temple City. A senior citizens’ club, bridge card and pinochle club, exciting day trips and driver safety courses are also included among the many services and activities that make life rewarding for senior citizens in Temple City. Temple City is a great place to grow up, but it is also a great place to grow old.
