Open Gym for Youth and Family

Gyms will be open for school-aged children and youth, along with their parents, to come build an obstacle course, dance, shoot some hoops, or anything fun and active. Parks & Recreation staff will be onsite at each school to welcome and assist participants, but unlike other municipal programs, these sessions are FREE and will be unstructured with no lesson plans or organized activities.
