About Community Services

The Community Services Department manages all of the recreation, human services, parks and green space, street tree and median maintenance, and transportation services offered by the City of Glendora. Community Services also provides social, recreational, and cultural opportunities, which stimulate and enhance the quality of life for Glendora residents by offering interesting programs and social services that ensure a variety of leisure opportunities accessible to all citizens.  

Class/Trip Refund Policy

A $10 service fee is charged for all refunds issued. No refunds are honored after the first week of class except by instructor approval. If an activity is cancelled by the Community Services Department, an automatic refund will be given. If a class/trip/tour maximum is reached before your request is handled, you will automatically be placed on a wait list and your funds will be returned. If a spot opens, the wait-list will be contacted on a first-come, first-served basis, and payment will be requested at that time. Absolutely no cash refunds are given at any time! No refunds given on trips $20 or less. Trip refunds are issued only if a requested cancellation can be filled from the wait list.

The California State Water Resources Control Board recently voted to extend and expand restrictions on water use.  As such, the City of Glendora is doing our part by only watering our parks, facilities and medians 2 days a week, per the restrictions.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Community Services Department at (626) 914-8228.
