Recreation Services Offers New Conveniences

by Kelly Tolbert, Recreation Coordinator, City of Prescott

Since Jan. 1, 2021 the City of Prescott Recreation Services Department has offered a more convenient way to conduct business for residents and visitors via a new online system. 

With the implementation of a new community portal called RecDesk, you can (after creating a one-time user name and password) reserve facilities (ramadas and camping), view facility availability, register for adult sports leagues, register for programs (Trekabout Hiking Club), submit requests for athletic fields and Special Events. Users also can pay for their amenities through this system. 

To access the portal, go to the City of Prescott website ( and find Recreation Services to the far right where Facility Rentals can be found; click on it. Or, type the link into your internet browser. 

Once the site has been accessed, the user will need to create a username and password to log in and manage any future transactions. Once this has been established, entire households can be formulated and managed all from the one account. 

For example, someone can reserve a ramada at Watson Lake and register for an adult volleyball league at the same time. Our goal is to centralize transactions and simplify the products the department is able to offer our visitors. 

Additionally, Recreation Services can now be found on social media platforms Facebook and Instagram. We are excited to offer announcements, facility additions and closures, and other fun content! To find us on either one, search the handle @prescottrecservices or Prescott Recreation Services Department. For more information, feel free to contact us at 928-777-1122 or email
