Therapeutic Recreation Services

Our Mission

The City of Santa Clara Parks and Recreation Department Therapeutic Recreation Services serves the recreational and social needs of individuals who have disabilities in Santa Clara County. You do not have to be a resident of the City of Santa Clara to participate in our programs! We offer programs such as aquatics, dance, fitness, and social clubs. Meaningful and purposeful activities are planned that develop and enhance social skills, communication, personal growth, and focus on one’s abilities rather than disabilities.

Who We Serve

Enthusiastic teams of Therapeutic Recreation Leaders serve as positive role models and are prepared to meet the social and recreational needs of individuals with disabilities. Disabilities served include, but are not limited to, developmental disabilities, autism, physical disabilities, cerebral palsy, neurological disabilities, aphasia, hearing/visual impairments and emotional/behavioral challenges. Participants must be able to function in program ratios and be independent in personal care needs, or bring an attendant. For more information on the programs offered and staff-to-participant ratios, see the information in the current Recreation Activities Guide and TRS Newsletter.
