Who We Are
REACH San Benito Parks Foundation was established in 2012, by residents, to facilitate a healthy community through the preservation and enhancement of parks, facilities, and recreation programs in San Benito County.
The Foundation works in partnership with a diverse variety of public and private parks and recreation agencies to fundraise and seek grants to enhance services, complete capital improvements, and expand accessibility to programs and services for all residents of San Benito County.
SAN BENITO COUNTY adopted a new Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan in 2010. In the Plan is a provision for a new River Parkway and Regional Park. Our families will have more spaces close to home to go adventure, refresh and play!
