About the Recreation Division

The Recreation Division of Baytown Parks and Recreation oversees special events, youth and adult programs, and adult athletic leagues, and manages over 200,000 square feet of indoor rental facilities. Some of our larger events include Juneteenth, Grito Fest, the Christmas Parade, and our biggest event, the Baytown 3rd and 4th of July Celebration, which brings around 45,000 people to Baytown to enjoy two nights of free entertainment at Bicentennial Park. 

Our Programs Team plans classes and activities such as summer camps, self-defense classes, and fitness classes that are offered for free or little cost on a weekly basis, while the Athletics Team facilitates sports leagues at multiple facilities, partners with community groups such as Special Olympics, and manages a variety of tournaments at the Wayne Gray Sports Complex.
