Recreation covers a wide spectrum of programs for a variety of ages from pre-school to adults. These programs are a mix of free, low cost and fee-based activities. Free and low cost programs include festivals, variety shows, concerts, family bingo, drive-in movie, and our playground program. Fee based programs include programs such as day camps, fishing derby, adult craft classes, rummage sales, and children programming.
The Come Out and Play Playground Program is a free program offered from 1:30-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday at Parkside School (Blackwell Park), 9th Street Park, Pence Street Park, Morningside Park and Clifty Park and Monday-Wednesday at Harrison Ridge Park. Any child between the ages of 6-12 can be dropped off and spend the next 3 hours playing on a playground, jumping rope, hula-hooping, going on field trips, enjoying a refreshing water fight, snacking on healthy treats and more! Your donation helps to keep these types of programs free and available for all children in our community.
