Veterans Park offers great summer programs for youth and adults

The Veterans Park Recreation Center announced a few new additions to its summer calendar this year that are both affordable and geared to all ages.

"There are some great classes going on at the recreation center this summer. Our Pee Wee Picasso and gym classes, for ages 3 to 5 years old, used to only run during the school year. Now we will have both classes going on throughout the year. We also have Mixed Martial Arts classes for ages 3 years old and up," said Mary Vance, administrative assistant at Veterans Park Recreation Center.

According to Vance, the center has added quite a few new classes to its schedule and wants to get the word out to the community, especially since the summer break is just around the corner.

"We want to bring more awareness to the center and our programs. A lot of people don't know all the programs and amenities we have to offer," said Vance.

Other classes geared towards the youngsters include Kick'n Kids Sports Spring Soccer, which runs until July 28. Ages for the classes range from 2 1/2 - 8 years of age and the cost is $96 per 8-week session.

There is also a new program called J Ross School of Arts that's geared towards children and young adults.

"The school of the arts will offer kids a choice of either a danceography class or tumbling, or both classes for $70 per month," explained Vance.

The center also has classes for older children and adults such as a basic archery class and Pele Fitness' outdoor weight loss and body sculpting boot camp. Both the boot camp and archery classes are held outdoors, inside the park.

"The Genesis bow and all the equipment for the archery class are being supplied by the Lee County Sheriff's Department's Youth Activities League," said Vance.

Veterans Park will also offer its regular summer camp, which includes two separate age groups, the traditional camp for children ages 6 to 13, and teen camp for ages 12 to 16.

According to Administrative Assistant Renee Mee, there are quite a few features that are unique to Veterans Park.

"We are one of the only parks locally who have a splash pad and a dog park," said Mee. "Residents can have access to our facilities and get a lifetime membership to our park for just $10."

The recreation center is open Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Amenities inside the center include a fully equipped gymnasium with basketball and volleyball courts, a fitness center with locker rooms, a game room and several multi-purpose rooms for classes and meetings.

Veterans Park Recreation Center is located at 55 Homestead Road South, Lehigh Acres, FL. For more information on about the center's amenities or classes, call 239-369-1521 or visit its website at www.leeparksd.org
