About Us


The Ladera Recreation District (LRD) was initially formed to serve the residents of the Ladera Community. Over the years, our services have extended and we now welcome members and guests who live in nearby Bay Area communities. The focus of the LRD has been to create a beautiful, comfortable setting that feels like a home away from home, a true community center for everyone..

Amid a stunning setting, Ladera Recreation District’s facilities include a six-lane 25-yard pool with diving well, and a spacious baby pool with its adjacent “Laderaland” play area. Complete with swings, slide and climbing equipment, it’s a favorite play area for all those who conquer it. The LRD has four tennis courts, two of which have lighting for evening use. Our unique hilltop location also boasts a bocce ball court, sand volleyball court - even a small skateboard ramp! We host many programs and activities described throughout this website that we hope will be of interest to you, your families and friends.

The summer season is an especially busy one. It’s during these months that you can truly experience the LRD - Evening barbecues, special holiday events, informal poolside gatherings for all ages, the awesome youth swim team - it’s a hub of summer fun. In the coming years we expect this energy to continue year-round with the 2023 completion of our new aquatics facilities!

Mission Statement

The Ladera Recreation District’s mission is to provide a clean, safe recreational environment in which members can exercise, socialize, relax, and develop lasting friendships through a variety of social events, traditions, and leisure activities. Our goal is to operate a financially stable, effective, and efficient recreation facility, with a pledge to be responsive and flexible to our members’ concerns and needs, as well as to the needs of the Ladera community.

The LRD does not offer a private, exclusive club membership and does not exclude any person based on race, religion, or creed.

The Ladera Recreation District offers a seasonal aquatics program, May through October, and year-round tennis and fitness programs. Special social events and holiday celebrations are planned for the enjoyment of the entire Ladera community.
