Stay at Home Recreation

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented all of us with new challenges to navigate on a daily basis.

In an effort to assist our citizens with healthy recreation options our Department has been sharing "Stay-at-Home Recreation" resources to their FB pages over the past few weeks. If you’re not currently following them make sure to visit: Bartlett Recreation Center, Bartlett Senior Center, City of Bartlett- Singleton Community Center, and Bartlett Parks and Recreation Athletics

You can also access additional resources below. If you have any ideas that you’d like to see included with our virtual programming then please send us an email. We’re in this together!

Saturday, May 16 is now "Parks to Kids" Day


Due to social distancing measures, this year we are bringing the parks to you! Below you will find all of the resources you need to celebrate the day. As you complete activities make sure that you capture the moment with a picture or video and then tag us on Facebook @bartlettparksandrecreation with the hashtag #ParksToKids

A Virtual Park Celebration

COVID-19 has impacted everyone and has limited our ability to interact with our beloved national, local, and state parks. With this in mind, National Park Trust has decided to take the 10th anniversary of Kids to Parks Day digital and instead celebrate May 16, 2020, as Parks to Kids Day -- bringing a much-needed infusion of the outdoors to kids and families as they isolate at home and practice social distancing. We know that this is not ideal but we also know that we are all in this together. We encourage kids and families to continue their celebration and join us by bringing the parks home on May 16th.

The Bartlett Parks & Recreation Department (BPRD) has linked select resources below for you to help celebrate the outdoors together:
