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.
The City is teaming up with Volunteer New York to sponsor a weekend of park clean-up and beautification on April 24th and April 25th. Read all about it here. Pre-registration is required and can be completed online at volunteernewyork.org/newrochelle or by calling 914-227-9317. A great and fun way to serve our community.
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.
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.
If you (or your kids) missed a chance to get a Selfie with Santa at City Hall a few days ago, fear not! Santa seems to love hanging out in New Rochelle, and is planning to visit six(!) local parks this Saturday. Here are the details.
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.)
