To better fit the needs of various age groups, Parks & Recreation programs and activities are split into three divisions: Recreation/Youth, LifeLong Learning (for adults) and Senior Adult/50+. Each of these divisions has their own section in the Activity Guide, a publication of all classes, program and activities produced three times each year. We also offer four family friendly special events. Find out more about each division and special events below.
