The Reedley Parkway corridor/bike and pedestrian trail project is a continuous 2.6 mile, multi-use, non-motorized, tree-lined transportation corridor constructed on railbanked railroad right-of-way. The corridor ranges in widths from seventy-five feet (75') to one hundred feet (100') and follows a clearly defined route which extends in a northwest to southeast direction through the center of the City.
Senior Citizens
Our Leisure Guide explains most of our ongoing Senior Programs, but the best way to find out what is going on in our Senior Department is to drop by the Phil Hudson Room on the north end of the Community Center to find out first hand what we have to offer local seniors. A lunch program, classes, and a variety of trips are planned on a regular basis.

If you or your group/organization are planning a large event, asking for street closure or other types of encroachments onto city property, you might need to apply for a Special Event Permit. Call the Community Services Office to see if your event qualifies as a Special Event. Our staff will be happy to help you with this process. Call us if you have any questions.
We have rooms in a variety of sizes for wedding receptions, birthday parties, baby showers, classes, and meetings.
