Recreation on the Move



Recreation Centers on Wheels

The Recreation on the Move mobile recreation centers bring the offerings and benefits of City R-Centers right to city neighborhoods. Recreation on the Move increases the access to and knowledge of the many healthy, educational and fun activities that City Recreation provides; will promote visits to R-Centers; and will provide information about other City-provided and other leisure–time alternatives available to them. Recreation on the Move embodies the City's commitment to youth in all its neighborhoods. 

Research indicates that youth and families that make meaningful connections with Recreation staff are likelier to engage in other recreation services and programs offered by the City. Youth involvement in after school activity is integral to reducing juvenile delinquency.  The mobile units give youth and their families a safe and comfortable neighborhood location for youth to enjoy physically, mentally, and socially stimulating and healthy activity!

What does Recreation on the Move offer?

The Recreation on the Move vehicles and their engaging staff bring recreation and much more to underserved neighborhoods:

    • Sports and group games like Jurassic Park, a dino-sized version of capture the flag!
    • Read-aloud program & free book giveaways
    • Health and wellness info and free fresh and healthy snacks
    • Homework help
    • Arts, music, and creative fun
    • Environmental and horticultural projects and games
    • Information about City R-Centers and youth programs, libraries, and other City facilities and services
    • And more!
