Get active with PARD

Friday, April 17, 2020 by Tai Moses

We may not be able to get out and about much, but we can still do a lot from the safety of our own homes. Now, thanks to the Austin Parks and Recreation Department, there’s even more to do at home. PARD is offering a lineup of online programming for residents sheltering in place that includes “exercise videos for kids and adults, virtual exhibits, arts and crafts, and programs for seniors,” according to a news release from the department. Kimberly McNeeley, director of PARD, said, “During this public health emergency, virtual programs and experiences will help Austinites enjoy a physically and mentally healthy life by learning, playing and connecting online.” New offerings will be posted as long as the stay-at-home order lasts.
