The Park is a performing arts center and event venue that began its tenure in 1948 as a movie theater located in Hayward’s Whitten Park. 

It has since become the heart of Hayward’s performing arts scene offering a wide variety of artists. 


To bring joy and connection to the community through the arts. 


The Park Center welcomes volunteers. It takes all kinds of folks to put up a show! If you are interested in volunteering or have any suggestions for shows, etc. please email us at
