People, Parks & Programs  
The Corte Madera Parks and Recreation Department’s mission is to create community through people, parks and programs.

To achieve this mission, we provide year-round recreational programs, classes, sports leagues, summer camps and events for residents of Corte Madera and surrounding communities. Activities take place at the spacious Corte Madera Community Center and adjoining 20-acre Town Park, and at other Corte Madera locations. Offerings range from  soccer leagues for Kindergarten-6th graders, from open gym to softball leagues for adults, and from AARP Driver Safety to computer classes for adults 55 and over. Events include Father-Daughter and Mother-Son Dances, Movie Nights, Breakfast with Santa and Big Band Dance.
