Summer Fun
Growing up in Boulder City in the 60s and 70s, most of my summer hours were spent on the tennis courts, the pool deck, and ball fields. Things didn't change much with my children. Between swimming lessons, t-ball, gymnastics, summer parks Safekey and special events, my children and I have many common recreation experiences about which we often reminisce. Those who share the experiences of growing up in Boulder City grow deep roots of appreciation for what they have experienced and take great pride in the community of Boulder City.

With summer upon us, parents are looking for constructive outlets for their children and the first place to look for fun summer activities is the Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department. Many of the standard activities that have lasted the test of time are: swimming lessons and open swim time at the Boulder City Pool, t-ball, softball and baseball, and free time on the tennis and basketball courts. Youth summer programs include tiny tots, ages 3 to 5; summer parks Safekey, ages 5 to 12; and the youth center, ages 12 to 18. In addition to Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department's continuous special interest classes, one can participate in special summer offerings that include golf, water-skiing, mountain biking, Young Explorers Science Camp and fit-n-play exercise program. Creative activities such as weekend tile art are held at the Art Center.

As you can see, the Boulder City Parks and Recreation Department summer fun opportunities are endless.
