    Online Registration Now Available for Winter/Spring Recreation Classes and Activities

    Registration for all Parks and Recreation classes and activities scheduled from January through April is now available. Our winter/spring catalogue includes some of our most popular activities - athletics, arts, fitness, enrichment, and more. Looking for a new hobby or skill? Join us to learn how to paint, create stained glass art, play mahjong, or even tap dance! Or, gather some friends and co-workers and join one of our adult rec leagues for some friendly weeknight competition. We also offer plenty of kids' activities to keep your little ones engaged and active all winter long. 

    We are also excited to bring you some new outdoor activities through our Naturalist program - fitness walks, hiking, backpacking, and more.
