Pleasanton residents can register for a wide array of activities and programs offered in the Spring 2014 Activities Guide published by the City’s Community Services Department. Residents will find the latest copy of the activities guide in their mailbox in the coming days, offering programs, classes and activities for all ages. To view the guide online, please visit http://www.cityofpleasantonca.gov/pdf/CoP_Spring14_ActGuide_web.pdf.
Among an exciting roster of new classes and camps offered in the latest issue of the guide is a “Spring Striders” day camp during spring break. Fledgling naturalists ages 6 to 12 will learn about animals of the region, identify plants, learn how to build emergency shelters and much more. Dress with the weather in mind and pack a lunch and water each day. “Girls Getting Out” is another new class for kids ages 9 to 13 who will enjoy an afternoon Girl Power hike. Participants will explore the Bernal Creek and ponds and discover the fascinating plants and wildlife that call the park home in a moderate level hike led by Megan Kummer.
Meanwhile, adults can get in on the new Open Gym Pickleball program offered each Sunday morning at the Pleasanton Middle School gym, where new players are always welcome. Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of tennis, badminton and ping-pong. Try your hand at this new trend that’s sweeping the nation, and was the first new sport added for competition in the National Senior Games in 20 years.
For more information about these and all of the classes in the new spring activities guide, please contact the Pleasanton Community Services Department at (925) 931-5340.
