The Town of Tillsonburg is launching a series of new one-hour weekly outdoor youth programs starting August 10.
“We picked programs that we could offer outside, because the ability to distance participants is much greater outside,” Andrea Greenway, Recreation Programs and Services Manager. “There’s a few different parks that we will be using.”
Children ages 5-8 can sign up for Monday’s Biking for Youth (9-10 a.m.) – explore the town’s cycling options on a guided ride, with education on bike safety. On Tuesdays, 9-10 a.m. for ages 5-8 and 9-12, it’s the Ultimate Sports hour at Memorial Park and the JL Scott McLean Outdoor Recreation Pad, featuring a different sport or active game each week. Wednesday is Triathlon, 9-10 a.m. at Memorial Park for 8-12 year olds – swim, run and bike, concluding with a triathlon event. Youth basketball is on Thursdays, 9-10 a.m. for ages 8-12 at the McLean outdoor rec pad with drills and fun games for all skill levels. Crafts in the Park wraps up the week on Fridays, 10-11 a.m. at Annandale National Historic Site’s front lawn for ages 6-12.
