Welcome to the Belmont Parks and Recreation Department website!  My name is Jonathan Gervais and I am the Director for the Department.  Our job is to provide recreational opportunities for the community by offering enrichment classes, youth sports, opportunities to exercise, events, great parks, and a lot of open space.  We have partnerships with youth sports organizations, the Belmont/Redwood Shores School District, Footsteps After Care program, the Belmont Library, Belmont 4H, charitable organizations, and local businesses to increase our reach into the community. 

Please browse through features of our website and get involved by participating in a survey, signing up for a recreation class, Receiving E-Notifications, get to know your Parks & Recreation Commission or by donating. Please find a local park or open space trail by going to the following pages. We are also working to improve the parks and recreation experience. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities please contact our department at 650 595-7441, or email us at

We offer recreation opportunities for all age groups from pre-school to older adults.  Please take advantage of the programs we offer, the events we host, and the parks and the open space.  Thanks for coming to our website and I look forward to seeing you in the community.
