The unfunded Almanor Recreation and Park District was officially formed in April 2000 after receiving a 70% voter approval rating in the March 2000 primary. The district has a few part-time, paid staff members and all other administrative and operational tasks are performed by five volunteer directors, a number of dedicated community members and adult and youth sports league parents.
The district boundary includes the 35-miles surrounding Lake Almanor and the eight miles west to the Plumas/Tehama County line. The district serves the townships of Chester and Canyon Dam and the housing communities of the Lake Almanor Country Club, Lake Almanor West, Bailey Creek, Foxwood, Peninsula Village, Hamilton Branch, the East Shore, the West Shore and Prattville, a total of approximately 4,500 individuals.
Since 2014, Almanor Recreation and Park District has moved forward in both technology and collaboration with many of the Lake Almanor Basin's finest organizations, service clubs, community volunteers and schools to both increase the number and the quality of each event and sports program offered to the public it serves.

ARPD is an unfunded Special District formed for recreation. In April 2000, five directors were seated by the Plumas County District 3 Supervisor. To meet the demands of this active district, ARPD meetings are conducted in accordance with the California Public Records Act.
Directors of the district are both volunteers and, by virtue of the special government status, they are also elected officials.
To provide continuity in the operation of the district and to the public within its boundaries, directors serve staggered two and four-year terms of office to ensure that experienced and well qualified directors are always available to lead the district forward. The following table presents our current directors and their terms:
