Westlake Rec is in session

Just like the schools, the Westlake Recreation Center is in session with our fall programming. We have a wide variety of classes and programs for people of all ages. The month of September is loaded with chances for learning, having fun and exercising. Here some programs we have coming up within the next week. Don't miss out on any of these opportunities.

Now that the kids are back at school and are involved in extracurricular activities, this will allow for more "you" time. The Westlake Recreation Center is offering an assortment of classes for adults, from dancing to drawing. Check out belly dancing, ballroom or swing dance classes that will have you moving and grooving to the music. If you like to draw there is an Adult Water Coloring class and an Adult Drawing class focused on the fundamentals of drawing.

If none of these classes seem to be of interest of you we can help you out in different ways. Sign the kids up for Parent Night Out. We will watch your kids for you and keep them entertained while enjoy more "you" time or catch up on things you’ve been wanting to get done.

Want to do something more family oriented? We can help you in that category too. This Saturday the Funutation Family Technology Workshop will kick off. This class pairs up a child and their parent to work together and build a robot. Come up to the Recreation Center and sign up for the Grand Olympics. This fun-filled Sunday afternoon pairs up a grandparent and grandchild to have bonding time to complete the Olympic Games.

Don’t fret if you were wondering about stuff for the kids to do. We have plenty of programming for them. For instance we have a D.E.N. Intro class for those kids who are interested in exercising or the Westlake Demons Basketball Camp for those wanting to improve their basketball skills. Tumble Bugs and Tiny Turners are gymnastic classes that focus on the basic and fundamental skills. Are your kids adventurous? Pirate Adventures will have them seeking for a buried treasure and Fun Science with Mrs. K will have them exploring the details about our exciting planet.

More information regarding all of these programs can be found at our website at http://www.cityofwestlake.org/recreation/index.aspx or by stopping by the Recreation Center at 28955 Hilliard Blvd, calling us at 440-808-5700 or by picking up our new Rec Gazette.
