Description of Program
A community partnership between the City of Reading and Reading School District, funded in part by tax dollars, that provides programs and facilities to the residents of Reading. The partnership between the two entities allows them to provide better recreation services in a cost-effective way. They provide neighborhood-based recreation and learning opportunities for all ages- with an emphasis on affordable programs for children- at schools, parks, playgrounds, and at their two recreation centers.
Programs include youth and adult instructional sports programs and leagues, fitness classes, summer playgrounds, club activities, cultural arts programs, after school care, and community special events.
Their recreation services bring people together and make the community stronger. The staff serve as mentors to youth and provide them with opportunities to learn, feel cared for, and become engaged in sports and activities. Positive recreation experiences help to build stronger communities and improve people’s lives.
