Winter is a great time to recreate! We've got a full array of special events including the Diestelhorst Dash in partnership with the Turkey Trot, the Polar Bear Plunge, and many holiday-themed programs including an annual favorite â€“ Cookies and Cocoa with Santa. Our basketball leagues, clinics, and open gym time are very popular this time of year too. There are entry points for all ages and abilities.
Two partner organizations kick into play this time of year â€“ Redding Lacrosse and Mt. Shasta Ski Team. Lacrosse is the fastest growing team sport in California today. Players use lacrosse sticks to catch, carry, and pass a ball up and down the field and score by shooting the ball into an opponent's goal. It's fast and provides a great work out and requires lots of coordination. We are also pleased to partner with the Mt. Shasta Ski Team which offers a full range of programs from developmental to elite racing. It's a great opportunity to improve skills under the direction of a qualified coach.
As the weather cools, go explore. Our ever expanding trail system has two new extensions making the east-west connections more convenient than ever. A new parking lot, shade shelter, and trails are now completed rounding out the 1.5 miles of natural surface trails at the Turtle Bay East Open Space area. This area is accessible from the Sac River Trail over Hwy 44 or N. Bechelli Drive. A new connector trail from Dana to Downtown behind the commercial businesses on Hilltop Drive to Browning Street is also complete and offers a less congested entry to the commercial corridor.

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.
