Pelham’s Park and Recreation fall activities
The programming line-up features sports and activities people have come to love. There’s also a large slate of new offerings, like adult basketball and pickleball. Several activities were developed with families in mind.
“Pelham Parks and Recreation aims to improve the quality of life and provide essential services in the form of increased health and wellness, special interest, and arts and culture programming for youth, families, seniors, and all that live in Pelham,” said D. Tyrell McGirt, Director of Pelham Parks and Recreation.
Due to COVID-19, the Pelham Senior Center remains closed. Staff members remain committed to providing programming for the city’s active adults.
“We want to keep them healthy, connected, and engaged during these unprecedented times,” said Assistant Director Alicia Walters. “We will continue to be creative and provide a variety of programs, such as virtual exercise, drive-up musical entertainment, and small groups, all while focusing on health and safety.”
The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
“I have attended all of the senior programs offered during COVID,” said Tillie Landers. “I enjoy coming to these programs because I get to see my old friends. We have a wonderful time together, even if we are social distancing. If it wasn’t for these programs, I would be sitting at home feeling very lonely,”
Health and Safety
As phased reopening continues, Pelham Parks and Recreation has everyone’s health and safety in mind.
“We are constantly monitoring local health trends and recommendations from health experts. Should we have to limit what we’re offering for safety reasons, we will communicate that on our website and social media platforms,” McGirt said.
