The Claremont Park Ranger program serves to inform the community and enforce City park regulations as a means to secure the safety of park users as well as engage the community in activities involved within the City parks.
The latest addition to the Park Ranger program is the Reserve Park Rangers. This program enables local citizens to participate and work shoulder to shoulder with Claremont's Park Rangers. The program was first introduced in June of 2007.
City Park Rangers as well as Reserve Park Rangers, promote public safety, provide information, assist in emergencies, inspect park facilities, enforce the municipal code, and monitor and verify park usage permits, public events, and organized sports groups. Park Rangers patrol the urban and rural parks by bike, off road vehicle, and on foot.
Park Rangers facilitate environmental awareness and education on proper use of City parks. This is conducted through classroom visits to local schools, guided walking tours at the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park, and everyday contact with park users.
The Park Rangers are a part of the Community Services Department and work jointly with other agencies including the Human Services Department, Claremont Police Department, and Los Angeles County Fire Department and are here for you, the citizens of Claremont and the neighboring communities.
