The Library & Recreation Department oversees programs and events within the parks. For questions or comments about programming call (925) 931-5340. 

Park Maintenance is operated through the Public Works Department. To report maintenance issues use the Mainstar portal or call (925) 931-5565.

Pleasanton Trail Challenge 2024

The Pleasanton Trails Challenge is back for 2024. This year track your miles using our tracker sheet. When you reach certain milestones stop by the Recreation Services counter (located in the library) to get a mileage finisher sticker. You can add these stickers to your water bottle from the trails challenge last year. (Didn’t get a water bottle last year? Don’t worry, ask for one at the counter as well.)

Can you finish the challenge this year?

Sign up for FREE at www.pleasantonfun.com and search “trail challenge”.
