Virtual Recreation Center


Welcome to the City of Duarte's Parks and Recreation Department Virtual Recreation Center!


While we all continue do our part in stopping the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and until the department can get back to providing in-person recreational experiences, we will be focusing on serving you through our Virtual Recreation Center. 

This virtual center will serve as a resource for Duarte youth, teens, adults and seniors looking to stay engaged and active during this Safer at Home order. All resources are free, and the content will be updated periodically so be sure to check back regularly.

If you’d like to share an idea or resource with us, please email us at
