Summer Recreation

Wondering how to keep your children busy while they are on break or vacation from school? The Parks & Recreation Department has a wide variety of recreational programs including an extension of their popular after school program. Our qualified, creative staff will aim to deliver a memorable experience for all involved. We have a terrific summer planned for your children. Some of the activities included in the programs are arts & crafts, field trips, indoor & outdoor games, sports & water activities, tournaments, swimming, bowling and movies. There is also a free program for teens 12-14.




Summer will be here before you know it…We proudly present the Recreation Guide. You will find a variety of healthy, entertaining and educational activities to choose from. Each activity and event is designed to offer opportunities for people to put a little fun into their lives and create a sense of community spirit. Many new and exciting weeks are scheduled, so take a look and sign up for a great summer.

For those of you new to Elko or new to our program, we welcome you. We sincerely hope that you'll find that Elko is truly your place to play. For those of you who've been with us awhile, you'll find a variety of new classes and some of the old favorite ones. Be sure and get ahead of the game by signing up early.

During the summer months Elko Parks are filled to capacity for picnics, family gatherings, sports activities and special events. We are happy to see so many people in our community taking advantage of our beautiful facilities.

We are looking forward to an action packed summer season. We welcome your comments, questions and concerns. You can reach our office at 777-7260 or by e-mail at Play hard, play safe!
