Youth Programs

This summer, Parks & Rec is offering small-group sports, STEM, and arts programs, in addition to other fun activities that conform to COVID-19 safety guidelines.*

For more information on any of the programs listed below, email us.  

We continue to add programming.  Check back here for updates, or follow Parks & Rec to receive important announcements by email or social media.

Story Walks

Get some exercise and read at the same time!  Story Walks have been installed at the Livingston Park Dorrs Pond Walking Trail and the Piscataquog River Rail Trail.  The two featured books are Going on a Bear Hunt and I Went Walking

A collaboration with the Manchester Library made this possible.    

Fun at Home

In our Covid-19 Recreation Directory, you will find dozens of activities you can do safely at home. 

Tennis in the Parks (Fall Session)

Led by an approved USTA NetGeneration tennis coach, the program will focus on developing the skills to serve, rally and play - so it’s perfect for beginners. Once the skills are there, participants will play fun matches with other players in the program. This program uses modified tennis balls, age-appropriate rackets, court sizes, and the latest fun and engaging activities that help players successfully learn and play the game quicker!

All players in their first session receive and keep a new age-appropriate racket, ball, and Net Generation tee shirt!   

Saturdays, from September 12 through October 17, at Manchester High School West Tennis Courts.  Registration available here. 


*Due to complications arising from COVID-19, the traditional Fun in the Sun day camp is cancelled for 2020.
