Parks, trails, and natural areas are a critical part of what shapes the quality of life for citizens of the City of Murrieta. The Parks and Recreation Department is dedicated to creating a variety of recreation opportunities for our residents and visitors while preserving and enhancing the rich heritage and natural beauty of this area.
Whatever your age and whatever the season, you will find many ways to be active and enjoy the great outdoors. There is so much to explore! For more information on trails, recreational and nature-based opportunities across the Murrieta-Temecula Valley, review the City's trails and parks maps.
The City of Murrieta encompasses approximately 1,350 acres of trails, open space, streetscape, slope and parkland, including 50 parks and a number of natural areas. Parks range in size from the tiny 0.4-acre Rosewood Neighborhood Park to the 40-acre Los Alamos Hills Sports Park, home to some of our youth sports leagues. We also have an over 20-mile network of trails for walkers, runners, bikers, and others to enjoy.
