Mt. Shasta Parks and Recreation features parks and facilities in several different locations in the City of Mt. Shasta.
The main offices are at the Mt. Shasta City Park, home to the headwaters of California’s powerful Sacramento River. Even during the driest years, clear, icy water rushes from the hillside feeding streams and ponds. Walk along the creek and follow hedges of horsetail, fern and fragrant willow. The 26 acre public park is located off N. Mt. Shasta Blvd. on Nixon Road. Playgrounds, hiking trails, picnic area, barbeque facilities.
Shastice Park is at the north eastern part of the city. The park consists of 38 acres, 14 of which are developed. Here you will also find the Siskiyou Skating Rink offering an outdoor ice rink in winter months and roller skating activities the rest of the year, and the Mt. Shasta Skatepark is a state-of-the-art skateboarding facility.
The Youth Sports Fields provide yet more recreational space for the community.
