We are happy to announce that the Drexel Heights community center has restarted limited outdoor activities to be held at the Winston Reynolds Manzanita park Ramada #6. Below is a list of the current activities that are being offered. Check back often for additional activities. Advanced registration is required for each activity and space is very limited. Appropriate COVID-19 protection measures will be in place. All activities require a reusable cloth or disposable mask that covers the nose and mouth. Masks may only be removed during specific activities when instructed by staff. Hand sanitizer will be available and we ask that you stay home if you are feeling ill. Programs are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather or under direction by Federal, State or local order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Activities are free unless otherwise posted.
