New Programs and Open Play
We have improved upon the Tiny Tots Program by offering both Parent/Child time gymnastics with arts & crafts for one low price. For $25 you get one full month of fun for your little guy, every Tuesday come into the air conditioned gymnasium and have them learn basic gymnastic movements as well as enjoying some quality time with your child. Then on Thursdays they will be in the arts & crafts room doing seasonal or educational projects that will stimulate the mind. We will kick this off in July, space is limited so sign up by clicking on the link here.
Plan a night out with your friends on the 3rd Friday of the month and leave the kids with us. Our Parents Night Out will allow you to go out for a night on the town feeling confident that your little ones are safe and having the time of their lives. Parents can drop their kids off at 5:00 p.m. and pick their kids up before 9:00 p.m. While parents are out having their fun, the kids will be having fun doing arts and crafts, games, sports, and watching a G or PG-rated movie. Even dinner, drinks and snacks are included. Children must be potty trained and from 4 to 13 years old. Click on the link to register for this program.
These new programs along with the City's award-winning Civic Dance Program, with tap dance, hip hop, ballet and jazz for all ages as well as karate for the entire family, will be just the beginning. Don't forget our Break Dancing is a free drop-in activity on Fridays. See our Program Guide for all of the details on these programs and continue to check back on our webpage, for more new programs are still to come.
We are now offering an open play volleyball time on Saturday afternoons, as well as open play badminton to go along with our pickleball and basketball open play times. See the Google calendar below for real-time open play hours.
History of the Center
The Rancho Bernardo Recreation Center was built in 1995. In January 2002, the center's name was changed to add Stuart Glassman's name. Glassman, who died in 2001, was a dedicated volunteer who saw that many recreational opportunities came to the community.
