It’s a basket of fun for pre-school classes this week at the Antioch Community Center! Preschoolers with their classmates, parents, and siblings enjoyed a fun-filled day of activities, games, and an Easter Egg Hunt Extravaganza outside in the Amphitheater. The Easter Bunny made a surprise visit too!

Last week, water park staff completed Certified Pool Operator training. This periodic certification ensures all staff is up to date on operational trends and best practices; necessary for the City’s risk management program.

Earlier in March, the Recreation Department and First 5 Contra Costa finalized a sports program for late spring. There are two distinctive and specialized sports programs that benefit not only our First 5 Contra Costa members, but the entire community. The collaboration and integration of these programs will provide children aged 2½ to 5 years old with a fun-filled athletic experience. The programs will be held at Contra Loma Estates Park and registration opens on April 2nd. First 5 offers scholarships for children participating. Recreation staff can connect new families with First 5 representatives.

On Monday March 12th, the Antioch Council of Teens (ACT) went over the list of entertainment to coordinate for the Recreation Department’s 2018 Recreation & Health Expo. So far Darrell Goobeer has been scheduled as the event DJ as well as the Antioch High School’s jazz band and drum line. The ACT is still looking for more entertainment options and hopes to book 2-3 more performers for this event.

There are many community activities through the Parks and Recreation, stay up to date by following them on Facebook: Antioch Parks and Recreation Facebook page.
