[ARCHIVED] Recreation gives you more for your free time

acoustic jam band

City of Eugene Recreation offers more than 400 opportunities to tap into this universal remedy this fall. The new, 76-page Recreation Guide includes activities for all ages and abilities. It is available “virtually” at GetRec.org and in hard copy at all City Community Centers, Pools, and Libraries, and at many other public offices around town. You can also receive a paper guide by mail by requesting a free subscription.

Activities from September to December listed in the new Guide range from the acoustic music jam for adults, featured on the Guide’s cover, to Hip Hop & Bop for Tots, a high energy dance class for kids ages 3-5. This Guide also cites several research-based benefits of recreation, such as strengthening family ties. Opportunities to reap those benefits this fall include the free, First Saturday Park Walks, Family Fun with Clay and Pipe Dream Productions. Don’t miss the No-school Swim Days on the kids’ days off from school this fall, or breakfast with Santa in December.

Teens will want to try the new Adventure Bicycle Tour in September and your group will benefit from team building activities at the Spencer Butte Challenge Course. Adults over 50 can choose from more than 200 activities this fall, from dance and exercise, to regional trips and educational presentations, or social events such as the Campbell Center’s Holiday Bazaar or the Turkey Burn water fitness class to help burn off those Thanksgiving calories.

Registration is now underway for most activities. For information on how to “Get Rec” electronically, sign up for a free subscription, or for a complete list of Rec Guide distribution locations, go to: http://www.GetRec.org or call 541-682-6864.
