This department strives to provide a wide variety of activities for residents of all ages for all seasons. Residents may choose from programs such as soccer, archery, field hockey, pottery workshops, karate, kickboxing, T-ball, basketball, and skiing for children, and yoga, exercise classes, and basketball for adults. As well as many Senior Citizen programs.  In addition the department sponsors a free Senior Citizen’s Picnic, Easter Egg Hunt, Winter Fun Day, Halloween Party and summer concerts.
