Formerly Pleasant Valley Park
1030 Temple Avenue
(Temple Avenue / Ponderosa Rd.)
This 12.95 acre park is one of the oldest most frequently visited parks in the district. The park is centrally located in the District. When construction was completed in November 1998 on the Pleasant Valley Skate Park, the Pleasant Valley Recreation & Park District became the first special district in the state of California to open a public skate park. Since then the skate park has become the single most heavily used recreational facility in the district, averaging several hundred skaters per day. The park also features:
On June 16, 2007, the District hosted the Grand Re-Opening of the Pleasant Valley Aquatic Center. The renovated facility included a 65ft Waterslide, outdoor Splash Zone, diving board, eight lanes, updated lobby and more! This premier indoor facility is the home to the Pleasant Valley Swim Team, special events, swim lessons for all ages, water fitness classes, lap swimming and more.
On Wednesday, January 5, 2011, the District Board of Directors unanimously voted to rename Pleasant Valley Park to Bob Kildee Community Park in honor of the District's first Chairman of the Board from 1962-1966 and again in 1968.
