RICHARDSON – Richardson’s Heights and Huffhines Recreation Centers are open with limited use and under modified hours. Both facilities continues to provide a space for people to stay active amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the summer, the Rec Centers have offered a number of online classes for kids and adults with plans to make more virtual activities available in the coming months.

“Everyday wellness is very important. We’re trying to put a lot more stuff virtually out there so it will help our residents and help everybody stay active,” said Rick Files, Recreation Center Manager for Huffhines Recreation Center.

August is National Wellness Month, a great opportunity to focus on self-care including healthy eating and exercise. Instructors not only educate members on the importance of wellness, but they’re making things feel normal, even under quarantine.

Most online classes take place over Zoom. Interested members sign up with their e-mail address and then instructors send out a link with a password to participate.
