Public Records Request

In the interests of public health and controlling the spread of COVID-19, the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District is taking steps that include the modification or limiting of non-essential City services or access to certain facilities. Many staff members will be working from home and may not be readily available to research physical copies of records.

If you need to submit a Public Records Act Request, please note that the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District may not be able to respond within 10 to 24 days.  We will try to send electronically available records through this portal.  If you feel that the records provided do not fulfill your request, please let us know, and we will continue our search for responsive documents once the shelter-in-place order has been lifted.

Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. 

The California Public Records Act (Government Code §6250 et seq.) provides citizens with important rights to obtain access to records held by public agencies, and the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District responds to requests in accordance with these terms. This request form may be mailed, emailed, or submitted in person at the District.
