Residents of Elk Grove enjoy award-winning recreation facilities, including over 1,000 acres of park and open space and 18 miles of trails. These facilities are constructed and maintained by the Cosumnes Community Services District.
Cosumnes CSD relies on two different funding sources to build and maintain these community assets. Money for park construction typically comes from impact fees paid by developers when they build new housing. Money for ongoing park maintenance comes from property owners, who pay an annual Landscape and Lighting (L&L) benefit assessment, which appears as a separate line item on their annual property tax bill.
