City Parks & Rec Offers Virtual Recreation During Shelter-In-Place

City of Santa Cruz Parks and Recreation has launched a Virtual Recreation web page for all ages. It includes five categories: Fun for Seniors, Fun Outside, Fun at Home, Arts and Culture and Local Resources.

Seniors are now able to connect with their favorite Louden Nelson Community Center instructors and participate remotely in offerings that include Gentle Yoga, Line Dancing, Boomer Qi Gong and Exercise Class.

Fun at Home offers kids activities including online games and make-at-home crafts while teens can join virtual activities through the Parks and Recreation Teen Center.

Fun Outside not only provides safe recommendations for visiting City parks, beaches and open spaces, but also offers 17 self-guided tours for remote exploration of the Santa Cruz Coast.

Arts and Culture has dozens of activities including virtual tours of the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium and many world-renowned art centers such as Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum. There are links to free Metropolitan Opera streams, Kennedy Center online videos and educational materials, plus virtual concerts from Neil Young and other performers.

Local Resources offers a guide to online shopping in downtown Santa Cruz in support of our local businesses.

Virtual Recreation’s content will continue to be updated with more to choose from at
