“Recreational activity relieves us of the feeling of fatigue, restores our energy and promotes a sense of joy,” cities the Journal of Sports.

Luckily for local residents, registration for Scottsdale Parks and Recreation spring programs are in full swing.

Spring programs take place during April and May. This includes tennis lessons and leagues, swim lessons, water exercise classes, youth activities, adult programs, and more. According to the city, health protocols are in place for all programs, and may include physical distancing, mask requirements, and temperature checks.

Programming is not limited to a specific age—there are a variety of options for everyone from toddlers to seniors. For those who like to plan ahead, there is also information available for summer activities.
