Silverado Modjeska Recreation and Parks District - Something Fun For Everyone

Silverado Modjeska Recreation & Park District

The Silverado Modjeska Recreation and Park District (SMRPD) is a local government special district established by the Orange County Board of Supervisors in 1961. Its purpose is to provide a well-rounded, wholesome program of recreation and leisure time activities for residents of the County's canyon areas, which includes Silverado, Ladd, Black Star, Williams and Modjeska canyons.

SMRPD requests that all groups of 20 or more coordinate any scheduled, public park use with SMRPD to avoid conflicts with reserved events.  If you are planning on having an event with 20 or more people, please contact, [email protected] to ensure availability
