With the summer season approaching, the days get longer, the temperatures become warmer, and a variety of fun activities are available for you and your family to enjoy that are offered through the Community Services department.

Of course there are always the tried and true popular activities such as, Tae Kwon Do, tennis, and yoga (to name a few!), but trying something different like joining the Adult Softball League, learn to play the guitar, or learn to Line Dance! Dive in and stay cool from the summer heat with the learn-to-swim programs, or enjoy our swimming pools at Washington Park and the James Stone Pool in Grape Day Park.

With no school, the kids have lots of choices over summer break to keep them active, socialized, and learning new skills while being engaged. The youngsters can participate in formal day camps where educated and experienced Recreation staff provide exciting activities every day to keep your day camper happy. Teens can participate in Film Making or TV production camp, or sign up for the Air Attack Flag Football or the British Soccer Camp.

Programs for those who are ages 55+ can partake in a plethora of interesting adventures at the Park Avenue Community Center or hang out in a “Cool Zone” with other like-minded folk!

Speaking of “Cool Zones”, the Library is an uber cool place for all ages and interests! The very popular Summer Reading Club has some enticing new programs for all ages this summer. Or, if you just need a computer to re-write your resume, search for a job, or get involved in a good book club, the Library is the place for you!

There is something for everyone through the Community Services Department recreation programs!
