What We Do
The diverse responsibilities of the Murrieta Park Rangers include park security and safety, visitor services, resource management, and interpretive programs.
Park & Facility Patrols
Park Rangers patrol City parks daily, enforcing City ordinances and park rules, inspecting for unsafe conditions, and addressing maintenance concerns. Park Rangers patrol all City facilities and perform after-hour checks for open doors and windows, vandalism, alcohol and skateboard violations, and unsafe conditions. Park Rangers patrol by vehicle and on foot.
Interpretive & Public Outreach
Park Rangers educate the public about the usage of the City's parks and open space. Park Rangers make classroom visits to local schools, lead park tours, and meet with park users in everyday contacts. Park Rangers also monitor park reservations and public events in City parks.
