Summer is game time around here. Our team swells to almost 200 members. All of our facilities are buzzing with young energy. This energy fuels us through the summer sprint.
A few days ago, I ran into the parents of one of our summer employees. They gave me an update on her life at college and her plans for this summer. She had recently been selected through a very competitive process for a coveted assignment at the university's summer retreat facility. They opined that the experience and skills she gained working summers at the Redding Aquatic Center were key reasons for her appointment. She had learned how to be a good employee, provide excellent customer service and serve on a team all while teaching swim lessons. Awesome!
This young lady is just one example of the fine team we train, and mentor to provide a fun, safe, and quality experience for the children of our community. Our supervisors have developed a keen sense of talent selection. Many times this talent is still potential waiting for opportunity. I am grateful to our supervisors and coordinators who demonstrate amazing dedication and patience to grow the next generation of our work force.
I am very pleased to present our summer guide chocked full with a wide array of opportunities for all interests and ages. I invite you to come play with us. Meet our staff. Experience their energy and enthusiasm. Learn something new.
Be Active and Be Well,
We have moved to City Hall, 777 Cypress Avenue, the second floor.

On a year-round basis Redding Recreation provides opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to pursue hobbies, develop talents, form new friendships, and enjoy various sports.
During our infamous hot summers we offer swimming classes and a variety of aquatics programs. We are especially excited about the Redding Aquatic Center which features an olympic sized pool, a second pool and water slides.
Two large city parks and numerous smaller parks provide ample facilities for picnics and family fun. In addition to our current programs, Redding Recreation is continually seeking new ways to meet the ever-changing needs of our community.
