Parks & Recreation

Summer 2021 activity planning is underway. We are still monitoring CDC and state guidance for the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are hoping to open the pools back up for our residents this year! We still need lifeguards to make this happen - see more about applying through the sidebar to the right. We will not be offering the Summer Playground Program or the Summer Teen Enrichment Program this year.

For current offerings, visit our Programs & Events page.
For Virtual Programs visit this page.
