Get ready, get online and get fit as Bernalillo County Parks, Recreation and Open Space gets ready to offer virtual summer programming.

As part of the ‘Recreating Recreation to Virtual Involvement for a Healthier and Safer Community Experience’ campaign, parks and recreation will offer Esports, karate, basketball drills, horsemanship, youth grab-n-go arts & crafts kits distributed to the first 100 at each community center on Fridays from 10 a.m – 1p.m., and even virtual field trips as part of the program. Keep an eye out for the new mobile rec program.

Additionally, senior grab-n-go ceramics will be offered at the South Valley Multipurpose Senior Center on Mondays and Fridays from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. These times are for picking up and dropping off ceramic pieces, as well as for paying for the program. The cost is $16 per month, payable by cash, check or credit card. Each paid participant will receive two small to medium pieces or one large piece per week. A list of molds is available and then participants call-in their order for next week by 4 p.m. Friday. The number to call is 505-468-7605 for questions and ordering.

“Protecting the health and safety of the kids is still our number one priority,” says Parks, Recreation and Open Space Director Debbie Jo Almager. “And, we also want to keep our kids engaged and entertained during this dedicated home time, and that’s where these programs come in.”

The virtual programs and grab-n-go ceramics begin Monday, June 8.

In addition to the virtual classes, Parks, Recreation and Open Space will be opening county fitness centers and Rio Grande indoor pool for lap swim.
