Virtual Recreation

Welcome to City of Redmond’s Virtual Recreation and Resource page. 

Discover a new way to PLAY - at home.

We are committed to serving you by delivering fun and educational online resources to help you and your family remain active, engaged and informed while you stay home, and stay healthy.

This page provides virtual activities that inspire learning, encourage healthy habits and help maintain social connections through online sharing. While we miss seeing you in our facilities and attending our classes or services- we hope we can connect with you online through our Facebook page or during one of our live events.  

In the meantime, check out the resources and activities below. Make sure to let us know what you think by participating and using the hashtag #RedmondRecAtHome
