How To: Keep Informed about Orange County Parks & Recreation Activities

By Jayson Woods, Programs & Facilities Supervisor, Orange County Parks & Recreation

Orange County Parks & Recreation offers a variety of activities throughout the year. Some examples include disc golf tournaments, a color powder fun run, sports clinics and camps, outdoor skills and archery lessons, martial arts like Tai Chi and Karate, discount ticket offers, and much more! We want to make sure our residents are aware of the best ways to stay in the loop about OCPR programs and events. The best way to keep informed is to utilize the “ Notify Me ” system available through the Orange County website. This system allows an interested citizen to select topics for which they would like to receive information. Once registered, emails will be automatically sent to the citizen regarding the topics selected. In addition to Parks & Recreation Programs, citizens may elect to receive emails about Board of Supervisors Meetings, Press Releases, County Events, and more! You can sign up at (look for the light green “ Notify Me ” icon); or if you prefer, simply call us at (540) 672 - 5435 and we would be happy to add your email address to the Parks & Recreation list. We highly recommend Notify Me, as it is the most reliable way for you to receive information. We also maintain a listing of activities on our departmental page of the County website, which can be accessed directly at Click the “ Recreational Activities ” link on the left side of this page to view activities sorted by age and season. Special events are listed under the “ Events ” link. As another option, we also actively maintain a Facebook page, which can be accessed at Please give us a like! Be aware that our Facebook page is a useful tool to stay informed but is not as reliable as the other methods. It is easy to miss posts and it is possible that Facebook will not even relate some of our postings to all followers.

On a final note, you are always welcome to call our office at (540) 672 - 5435 for more information.
