In an effort to keep kids and kids at heart engaged and connected to the community during these challenging times, we've created this page as a resource for some great virtual activities for all ages. Visit this page often for new updates and ideas to keep you and your loved ones healthy, entertained and informed.
Our Rec Staff has been working hard at creating fun activities to share each week and posting to them to the South Portland Parks & Recreation Facebook Page. Activities include fun art projects, no bake cooking recipes, sports skills, story time and more! These activities are FREE and there is no need to register. A schedule of activities will be posted on Facebook and emailed out each Monday for the coming week.
For a list of past videos done by staff, visit the South Portland Parks & Recreation Facebook Page Videos Tab.
