Get active and have fun, Coachella.

Did you know that you live in one of California's fastest growing cities? Known as the "City of Eternal Sunshine," Coachella is a family community with a small town atmosphere and plenty of room to grow. Much of its culturally diverse population consists of Mexican American citizens, born and raised in Coachella. Coming from a strong agricultural heritage, Coachella's economic boom is attracting new businesses and more young families, which helps forge a strong sense of community.

Coachella is committed to an increased focus on your family's health and wellness and improving the quality of life of residents. Coachella's expanded recreational and social activities, many taking place at Bagdouma Park, bring you and others more fun ways to stay active, from swimming lessons to ball fields and basketball and tennis courts. The District's largest recreational facility in close by Indio also provides a complete range of activities for all ages, tots to seniors.

Join in the fun! Check out DRD programs and activities in Indio, where you'll find everything from Martial Arts and Gymnastics to Piano and Dance. Click here to view the latest version of DRD's Activity Guide for your community.
