If you live in the City of Houston area, you should check out what’s going on at one of the Houston Parks and Recreation Department’s sixty community centers or at HPARD’s Metropolitan Multi-Service Center. If you’re a student looking for something to do when you’re not in school, if you’re retired and you think you could fit a couple more activities into your schedule, or if you just want to get your mind off of work, there are a host of programs you can take part in alongside other people in your community. And if you’re trying to get or stay healthy, HPARD’s 6 fitness centers, 11 weight rooms, 2 cardio rooms and instructional-sports programs can help you reach that goal. HPARD’s community centers and their programming can add another dimension to your life.
If you’re interested in finding out more about what your nearest community center has to offer, feel free to visit or give them a call.
Parents with kids between the ages of 6 and 13 should be sure to look into the After-School and Summer Enrichment Program. The After-School Enrichment Program lets kids participate for free in a bunch of different fun activities (we’re talking arts and crafts, sports, games, and things like that) under HPARD supervision. Spots in the camp will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis till all the spots are filled, so register soon! Parents can register online by signing in to their account on HPARD’s registration site (or creating one if they haven’t already). Once you’re signed in, type “Summer Enrichment Program” into the search bar, find the time and place that works best for you, and add your activity to your cart.
