City Park Headquarters

Headquarters of Mt Shasta Recreation and Parks District is located within the rustic, 26 acre Mt. Shasta City Park, one mile north of downtown Mt. Shasta.  Owned by the District, park facilities include four, scenic picnic areas, a Gazebo, a playground, and public buildings.  

Headwaters Spring

 The Headwaters Spring is a highlight not to be missed.  Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the paved, ADA walkway around the picnic grounds.   Explore the nature trail by way of the Headwaters Bridge – leading you thru the the trees & adjacent meadow with the peaceful, meandering Headwaters stream as your guide as you wind your way to the south end of the park and the Lower End bridge – your kids will LOVE IT !!
