Recreation

Placentia is a healthy, active community with a very long and storied heritage of sports, recreation, and active living. It is one of the essential ties that binds the community, providing the vital fabric that connects family and friends. The town prioritizes the creation of opportunities for exercise and active lifestyles, reinforcing a sense of community and belonging, and continues its investment through its Recreation Commission.
