I’m sure it’s no secret that after school programs can be a powerful antidote to addressing the safety of our youth and community. Metro Parks & Recreation understand that keeping their doors open when the school doors close helps to keep kids away from violence. As a “safe haven”, it affords Metro Parks and Recreation an opportunity to engage youth in athletic, arts/cultural, and free-play activities.
Last year, they celebrated the opening of their new Kid’s Café Sites; a partnership they have with Dare to Care Food Bank. This year, Metro Parks and Recreation is excited to announce that they have increased their number of Community Centers offering “Hot Meals” to 11; up from nine (9) last year. They are also excited to announce the increase in the number of Community Centers, which have Wi-Fi (8). But that’s not all, they now have six (6) Community Centers, which have Computer Labs.
Please find below the Community Center General Handout, which identifies all of their Community Centers, their locations, as well as their amenities.
