Parks, Trails & Open Space

Folsom's extensive system of beautiful parks and miles of recreational trails enhance the quality of life for all residents.


Options abound for Folsom residents who want to engage in a healthy lifestyle. Providing the means by which residents can pursue their fitness goals – through facilities, parks and services – is a guiding principle of the Parks & Recreation Department. With 46 developed parks in the city totaling 261 acres, the path to fitness begins just steps from home. Nearly every home in Folsom is within a half-mile radius of a park. With amenities that include natural and synthetic sports fields; playgrounds; courts for basketball, tennis and volleyball; water features; walking trails; picnic areas and more, parks provide easy access to an abundance of recreational options.

Park Hours:
Parks are open daily from 7 a.m. to one hour after sunset.


The city’s recreational trail system provides more than 50 miles of beautiful paved trails for walkers, joggers and cyclists. Many of the trails meander through Folsom’s dedicated open space corridors, providing a journey through greenbelts, wooded areas with native oaks and vegetation, wildlife habitats, and near creeks and seasonal streams.
