Fun in the Sun – Summer Recreational Opportunities for Kids

Here’s a great summer opportunity for kids pre-K through graduating fifth grade.  New Rochelle Parks & Rec is sponsoring “Fun in the Sun” programs Monday through Thursday for six weeks, on a rotating basis at nine parks throughout the city.  All activities will observe safe social distancing for 1-3 hour time blocks and be limited to 25-35 children per group.  Program classes include fitness, Yoga, Zumba, STEM, Kayaking, Arts & Crafts and more, and special events like Truck Day, GRIT Ninja Warrior and Field Days.  Learn more or register here.  And this brochure has additional details.


Little Hoopers

New Rochelle’s Parks & Rec Department continues to do a great job of offering creative, affordable, COVID-safe recreational opportunities to families and youngsters.  Here’s the latest.


Explore Downtown New Ro with COVID-Safe Fun for Families

Outside Liebman’s, part of the StoryWalk

This will be a challenging winter for all of us, so it’s even more important than usual to have fun, COVID-safe outdoor activities that allow families to stay healthy, fit, and connected to our community.  The New Rochelle Business Improvement District is stepping up by offering two special walks: the New Rochelle Downtown StoryWalk and the New Rochelle Downtown Holiday Puzzle Tour Game.

Twenty-four businesses are dedicating sections of their windows for two and a half weeks.  Fourteen of those windows will be listed on maps for the StoryWalk, but ten will not be listed, as they are part of the puzzles for the Holiday Puzzle Tour Game.  Fun, especially for families.

All the details are in this press release.

This should be fun.  Thank you to New Rochelle Parks & Rec for coming up with creative ways to celebrate the season, while staying COVID-safe.  And thank you to Santa!  (AKA James O’Toole — just don’t tell the kids.)
