Facility rentals are available for designated Department facilities for a fee.
The Department is dedicated to providing an extended variety of community and recreational services, leisure time activities and healthy programs residents of Montebello and many neighboring communities. The Department encourages individuals to discover the recreational opportunities currently offered.
