Southfield Parks & Rec launches exciting and safe new classes and program
Southfield Parks & Recreation is safely welcoming residents back indoors for an exciting lineup of new classes and programs. The P&R Winter Session 1 Activities Guide is out now and full of both virtual and in-person programs throughout the months of November and December. Due to the abbreviated schedule of programming, the P&R Winter Session 1 Activities Guide will only be available online at https://www.cityofsouthfield.com/departments/parks-recreation.
Parks & Recreation have implemented numerous new safety measures for all the indoor programming, including, but not limited to all instructors, staff and participants are required to properly wear a face mask at all times, including during physical activity. Physical distancing from others must also be maintained and temperature checks will be required before participation. A complete overview of all new COVID-19 safety measures can be found in the activities guide.
Participants must pre-register for all programs and no drop-ins will be taken. There are three convenient ways to sign up for all P&R classes and programs:
- Register online at https://apm.activecommunities.com/SouthfieldParks
- Call the Parks & Recreation Information Desk at (248) 796-4620 Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
- In-person at the Parks & Recreation Information Window located inside the Southfield Pavilion at 26000 Evergreen Road. Open Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
The Guide includes programs details for every age group and interest, from Craft Nights 4 Kids and weekly scavenger hunts for the whole family to virtual Vollbrecht Planetarium programs, various small group programs for adults 18 and up inside the Burgh Historical Park 1854 Church and indoor fitness and sports activities for all ages at the Beech Woods Recreation Center. Popular Fresh Air Fun and Fitness activities like A Walk in the Park or the Lite on ‘R’ Feet Hustlers’ drop in dance classes are adapting and moving indoors to the Southfield Sports Arena and Art & Activities Building.
Residents are also reminded that just because the air is cooler doesn’t mean the parks are closed. You can enjoy a walk in nature at any Southfield park year-round. Pull on your boots and put on a warm coat and see your favorite parks in a whole new way!
