At this time the division is allowing dance and fitness classes and court rentals to resume between the hours 10:00am – 7:00pm, Monday thru Friday. The tennis courts will continue to remain open. All visitors to the gymnasium will be required to check in and will only be allowed to enter with the instructor present. NO OPEN GYM until further notice. The Joslyn Senior Center and the Redlands Community Senior Center will remain closed.

The Redlands Recreation Division will continue to provide fun and enriching recreational programming that you can enjoy in the safety of your home with virtual recreation programming or in-person sport classes at city parks. We have taken necessary precautions with our in-person programs to ensure the health and safety of participants. Please visit our website often as updates will be posted regularly.

In addition, we are working with members and businesses of our community to provide support to our Seniors who are at high risk during the COVID-19 crisis. The services we are able to provide includes weekly frozen food packages through the Family Service Association, care packages for seniors, our never alone program, and social engaging programs via Zoom.
