How to Use This Site

The South Bend Parks & Recreation website is primarily intended to promote the activities, programs, parks, facilities and news relevant to our department.

What's Available

If you're interested in our parks or facilities, please visit the Parks & Facilities section. Here you can find information about our parks, including an area map, where you can find parks close to you.

All our events, classes, programs and activities can be found in our Activites & Programs section. You can either browse by category or by audience, which includes age groups. You can also view our full event calendar, which has a lot of our activities listed.

To register for classes and programs, we use a system called WebTrac. You'll need to create an account to sign up for classes, but once you've done that, you'll be able to register and pay online.
