Facilities Programming
Tell us how YOU want to PLAY at Mammoth Creek Park!

The Recreation Commission wants to hear how you want to play in the park, on the ice, at the RecZone and in the Community Center. With your help, we can create a ‘recreation destination’ that the entire community of Mammoth Lakes will actively enjoy, value and ultimately be proud to call YOUR Park.

The Recreation Commission is the Town Council’s designated lead advisory body for this project and will be actively engaging the community in assessing the programming needs and space alternatives of the facilities.

The Recreation Commission has identified the following goals for the Community Multi-Use Facilities at Mammoth Creek Park:

  • To enhance the quality of life for residents of Mammoth Lakes.
  • To provide complementary multi-purpose, year-round, indoor and outdoor recreation opportunities accessible to all residents and visitors.
  • To create a venue that encourages and facilitates community social interaction.
  • To provide a ‘recreation destination’ that the entire community of Mammoth Lakes will actively enjoy, value and ultimately be proud to call ‘Our Park.’
  • To provide enhanced and innovative program offerings that promote ‘healthy and active’ lifestyles for all ages.
  • To continue to allow for the passive enjoyment of the park that includes walking paths, open space and access to Mammoth Creek Park.

The Recreation Commission will review and incorporate previous community recreation planning efforts into the Mammoth Creek Park planning effort. These include the Town of Mammoth Lakes General Plan, Parks and Recreation Master Plan, RecStrats I & II, and most recently Plan Your Parks. In essence, this program of work continues the broader “Plan YOUR Parks” process, but narrows and refines it to a “Plan THIS Park” program.

The Recreation Commission invites you to attend a special workshop for the Community Multi-Use Recreation Facilities proposed at Mammoth Creek Park from 5:30-7:00pm on Monday, March 6, 2017 at the Community Center located at 1000 Forest Trail. Light snacks and refreshments will be served. 

The Commission is seeking input from the public regarding the proposed phasing options, project timeline, funding strategies, operating plan and year-round programming. With your help, we can create a recreation destination that the entire community of Mammoth Lakes will actively enjoy, value and ultimately be proud to call YOUR Park.
