Feasibility Study: Rockland Recreation & Community Center

As part of the feasibility study for a new community building this outreach meeting will include a presentation by Architects Schwartz/Silver and Rockland Recreation Director Jeanne Blaney that will provide initial ideas and answer questions on what kinds of spaces and programs might be included in a new recreation and community facility.  

Resident attendance is highly encouraged to: 

  • Understand how this building fulfills the vision of the Hartsuff Park Usage Plan 
  • Voice ideas about new spaces 
  • Ask questions and provide feedback 

The building will be designed in response to the community's feedback.

The Tot Enrichment Preschool Program, affectionately known as Chipmunks, provides children ages three to five with an enriching and educational environment that encourages creativity, while interacting with other children. The preschoolers work to develop social, emotional, and academic maturity necessary for the transition from their home environment to a school environment.

Play

High fives to sports, fitness, health & wellness! All are a big part of our year-round comprehensive programming for residents and non-residents age three and older. 

Tots' activities teach the fundamentals and beginner skills of popular sports such as basketball, soccer, and floor hockey. 

As children grow, boys and girls are introduced to a wider variety of sports thanks to partnerships with Premier Hoops, Total Sports Plus, and F.A.S.T Athletics. 

Exciting teen sports provide opportunities to socialize with friends, build confidence, and strengthen their developing skills. Soccer, lacrosse, flag football, volleyball, and basketball attract long-time players, or anyone interested in trying a new sport without an intense competitive atmosphere. 

Adult fitness and sports programs give the 18+ crowd a chance to let loose, spread their competitive spirit, gather with colleagues, and be heart healthy. Yoga, kickboxing, and cardio and strengthening workouts are this season's fitness activities. 

Create

The multi-talented Recreation staff has a deep appreciation for arts, humanities, and sciences. Youth and adult enrichment classes are making a mark on our Programming. Children can take dance lessons, be a chef in our Kids Test Kitchen course, experiment with different forms of art, and perform in Drama Kids. STEM and science classes are very popular. Boys and girls are challenged to build, learn investigative techniques, are introduced to physics, partake in science experiments. South Shore Pottery has been an inspiring partner with us offering pottery classes for adults and children.
