Earlier this week I received a copy of the Winter 2009 “Activity Guide” from Harrisonburg’s Department of Parks & Recreation. Thumbing through it, I was reminded of the great resources offered by the city to residents and non-residents alike. And a lot of the activities are free or cheap — a plus given the current economic environment.
Visit the department’s web site to see the range of offerings. (There’s a download available for the fall activity guide, so I am guessing they will replace that with the winter guide soon.) There are classes for dance, pilates, gymnastics, horseback riding, sign language, CPR, swimming, and much more.
And who knew that Harrisonburg has both a kickball league and a wiffleball league for adults? There’s also a dodgeball tournament on March 6th. If the mention of these “sports” brings up bad elementary school memories, then perhaps you’d prefer archery, volleyball, or slow-pitch softball. You can enjoy all of the above and more right here in the city.
