Get Up, Get Active...
The New Hope’s Parks and Recreation Department offers many programs for people of all ages and all interests that will get you up off the couch, away from the computer, engaged with others, and having lots of fun! There are sports activities to encourage physical activity, craft and art activities to inspire creativity, and educational programs to stimulate the mind.
- There are many beginning sports programs that give preschoolers and younger kids a firm foundation in the basic skills and rules of various sports – like T-Ball, Tumbling Tots and Pee Wee Soccer. And a bunch of ongoing programs, sports camps, and leagues to help youth expand and refine their skills- like Gymnastics, Soccer and Basketball camps, and Junior Golf Leagues.
- There are also lots of programs for youth and teens that teach art and craft skills – like Art in Action and KidCreate Studio, and those that provide practical knowledge – like Little Tigers and Babysitter Training. And don’t forget special events like Safety Camp, Bike Rodeo, Vehicle Fair and more.
- There are delightful opportunities for parents to share new experiences with their youngsters – like creating crafts projects, participating in music classes, or dancing at the Daddy/Daughter Princess Ball.
- There are fun activities for the whole family - like good ticket deals for events at Target Center and Xcel Energy Center, Wet and Wild Water Fun Day, Family Fun Night, or a summer play at the New Hope Outdoor Theatre.
- There are programs for adults that provide an opportunity to learn something new- like CPR, Canning, and Gardening, or brush up on skills you already have – like Defensive Driving, get some exercise – by joining a golf league or taking the Adult Fitness class, or enjoy a fun outing with Community Tripsters.
