Information and Contact Numbers

From: The Director's Court

As a mom with a busy family, I have experienced many times the frustration of remembering I need to sign up for a program only after the office is already closed. Last Spring, I told my son over and over about the new Farm Camp -how much fun it would be with pigs and tractors. Several weeks later, Farm Camp was featured on the evening news. My son asked why he didn't get to go. Yikes, I forgot to sign him up and when I remembered the wait list was already 20 long. Bummer.

But no more! Redding Recreation is proud to announce online registration. This clean, easy to use registration system will allow all of us to search programs by age, dates, type, and keywords. We can find our favorites, and sign up for new classes or events like Adult Modern/Contemporary Jazz class or Youth Aikido. Once your family members are entered, future enrollments take just a couple clicks.

No longer will we be confined to office hours. Registration will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. With current participant information, we will be able to alert you to late breaking news like one of our softball superstars in town for a half-day clinic or weather cancellations text to your cell phone. We will be rolling out additional enhancements next year that include calendaring functions and e-mail/text reminders.

Every software rollout has some glitches, so our trained office team remains available to you. As always, they will assist you at the office and offer support over the phone if you have any questions. At Redding Recreation our desire is to make online registration an accessible, simple tool so that all of us can maintain health and fitness in our busy lives.

Be Active and Well,

Our Services

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.
