Welcome to the Community Services Virtual Recreation Center!  Here, you will find a collection of digital recreation resources.  The City is committed to keeping program participants safe during these challenging times.  The Community Services Department also would like to offer you and your family new and creative ways to stay busy, active, and engaged.  We hope that by bringing these resources to your fingertips, you will be able to prioritize your health and well-being. 

Many of the City’s contractors and service partners offer these resources for free!  The City will update this page with new information periodically.  Please note that the City does not endorse, collect payment on behalf of, or receive funds to advertise any of the third-party sites or services listed or referenced on this page.
