"Fun Factory" Enriches Youth

Southgate Recreation & Park District's "Fun Factory" promotes social, physical and intellectual development of children grades Kindergarten through 6th

September 2018 - Southgate Recreation & Park District (SRPD) is an independent special district as authorized through California State Public Resources Code Section 5780 in 1956, governed by an elected five-member Board of Directors. It is a local government agency established to serve the residents of South Sacramento.

For over fifty years Southgate Recreation & Park District has been acquiring and developing parks and recreational facilities. The District encompasses a 52-square mile area of unincorporated South Sacramento County. In this area, the District currently maintains 47 parks, 6 community centers, 2 aquatic facilities and numerous landscape corridors and nature preserves. The District’s primary goal and its public charge is to provide recreation and park services to the 120,000 residents it serves. We employ professional management and staff who manage the diverse services and facilities for the South Sacramento community.

Southgate Recreation & Park District has a commitment to provide positive recreational opportunities, safe and attractive parks and open spaces, resulting in a healthier community. One of many opportunities that Southgate Recreation & Park District offers is before and after school programs for youth. In cooperation with Elk Grove Unified School District, Southgate Recreation & Park District offers before and after school programs, called Fun Factory, in a safe and engaging environment for children in Kindergarten through 6th grade. Fun Factory is held at two locations, Mary Tsukamoto Elementary School and Maeola Beitzel Elementary School.

Fun Factory’s goal is to enrich the lives of children by providing a safe, supportive and structured environment. Available programs promote the social, physical and intellectual development of each child. Staff draw upon the most effective academic enrichment, physical fitness, nutritional and life skills programming to challenge children and make learning fun. Participants are also provided a healthy snack and homework assistance.
