The Allentown Department of Parks and Recreation is embarking on a virtual programming series entitled “Recreation at Home” focusing on children of all ages and abilities and families.

Throughout the month of November, recreation staff will begin sharing activity sheets, resources, and videos on a variety of recreational topics including physical and mental fitness, sports specific skills & drills, DIY recreation activities, literacy and much more.

Recreation at Home content can be viewed on social media pages @ AllentownParksandRec and on the department website at  

Additionally, the department encourages community members to subscribe to the new YouTube Channel at Allentown PA Parks and Recreation to access “Recreation at Home” video content.

According to Parks & Recreation Director Karen El-Chaar, “the city and the parks and recreation department want to help children, parents and guardians gain greater access to recreational opportunities that can be done in the home, in the neighborhood and in one of the many park spaces we have in our city.”
