Adult & Community Services

The mission of the Adult and Community Services Division is to provide quality facilities and programs to the community offering social, physical and educational opportunities for personal enrichment through recreation and leisure activities.

The Recreation Department offers many exciting activities including: ballroom dancing, pottery, painting, Ikebana, Naginata, Aikido, Pilates, Polynesian Dance, Zumba, online computer courses, and much more. For a full description of all the exciting adult classes offered please stop by the El Cerrito Community Center (7007 Moeser Lane) to pick up a rECguide or check out the online version of the guide by clicking on the "Recreation Brochure" link in the left column.

Have a Skill to Share?


The El Cerrito Recreation Department is looking to offer more classes for our community to enjoy. In order to do so, we need instructors! An instructor can be anyone who has a hobby that they wish to share with others. An instructor can also be any business owner who wants to highlight an area of their expertise while also promoting their business. And of course, an instructor can also be someone who already teaches classes and wants to teach one or two extra classes for the El Cerrito Recreation Department.
