The Recreational and Cultural Facilities Division (RCFD) is responsible for the acquisition, development, improvements, restoration, and maintenance of City parks, open spaces, recreation, and community facilities and other youth related projects. A majority of the funding is through Proposition K, an annual real property tax assessment on City residents over a 30-year period. Other funding sources include Quimby and Propositions A, 12, and 40.

The program's primary purpose is to combat the inadequacies and decay of the city's youth infrastructure, which has resulted in serious unmet needs for park, recreation, childcare, and community facilities. As a result, this program performs such services as feasibility studies, site and building design, construction documents (plans and specifications), construction/project estimating, bid and award services, and construction and project management for both new and existing facilities. Services are performed using City personnel, or through consultants managed by City staff. In summary, the Recreational and Cultural Facilities Program participates in the decision making process for both City owned, and non-City owned recreational facilities. Funding for Specified Projects is designated in the original Proposition K ballot measure, as approved by the voters of the City of Los Angeles, as well as through a biennial open and competitive Call for Projects process.

Neil Drucker is the Program Manager for RCFD.
