About Roseville Parks, Recreation & Libraries

Strategic Master Plan




The purpose of the Roseville Parks, Recreation, and Libraries Strategic Master Plan is to serve as a roadmap of where we are heading and how to best provide services to the community for the next 10 to 15 years. The plan will provide the City with the strategic direction that is necessary to meet the park, recreation and library needs of current and future Roseville residents and visitors.

A consistent theme throughout the development of this plan is Roseville Parks, Recreation & Libraries Department’s commitment to a quality system that delivers high-quality parks, open spaces, recreation programs, facilities, library services and events for all residents, while contributing to the quality of life of the City of Roseville.

Community Interest and Opinion Survey

The future vision of the Roseville Parks, Recreation & Libraries Strategic Master Plan is dependent on knowing what you want and, to that end, requires extensive community engagement. We believe through Parks, Recreation& Libraries connections are made. We want to know how you want to connect to others, connect to nature, and connect to our community.

Department of Parks, Recreation & Libraries

The City of Roseville is an incorporated city, located in Placer County off of Interstate 80, approximately 16 miles northeast of Sacramento, California. The City of Roseville is a Charter city operating under the City Council/City Manager form of government. The City’s Parks, Recreation & Libraries Department (PRL) recently completed construction of its 79th park with several more planned for the coming years as the City continues to grow on the western boundary. PRL manages close to 4,000 acres of open space, manages a robust urban forestry program and oversees two municipal golf courses. PRL also provides thousands of programs and events each year, including preschool and before/after school care through its Youth Development program. The department plays a key role in the city’s economic vitality by offering premier sports venues to attract local, regional, state-wide and national tournaments.

The department also includes library and museum services, managing three public libraries and the Maidu Museum & Historic Site. Library and museum programs enhance learning and provide additional educational resources to the community. Homework help, adult literacy, access to public computers, and sharing the community’s rich history are just a few of these highly valued services.
