Organizational Structure Opportunities
One of the initiatives of the Transformation Team was to review California Department of Parks and Recreation’s organizational structure and identify opportunities to eliminate duplicative services, realign divisions and programs to better support field operations, consolidate some field districts, flatten field management structures and establish career paths to leadership for a broad range of professional backgrounds. The Transformation Team has completed this task. Informed by the work of the team, the department will now work with staff and stakeholders as it develops a new organizational model.
Google Street View Treks!
Thanks to a partnership between California State Parks and Google Maps, you can now visit many of our beautiful parks right from your computer, tablet or smart phone. A total of 110 state park destinations have been filmed using Google Trekker, a backpack-mounted camera that provides 360 degree footage.
