The Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District is a separate government agency from the City of Simi Valley. It is a Special District. It was formed in 1961 for the specific purpose of providing parks and recreation activities to our community. Since that time, the Park District has established 50 parks and preserved over 5,600 acres of open space that is now used for hiking, biking, horseback riding and wildlife preservation. Several hundred years of Simi Valley history has been preserved at the Strathearn Historical Park and Museum, and guided tours are available. Railroad enthusiasts can tour a depot built in 1903 with historic exhibits and miniature train displays. The Park District also operates two equestrian centers, two swimming pools, two golf courses, and numerous sports and other recreation amenities. In addition to the many facilities available for public enjoyment, the Park District offers hundreds of diverse recreation programs and large community events such as concerts, arts and crafts fairs and outdoor movies.
