We send the Email Blast out periodically to inform you of upcoming activities you or your family might be interested in. This is a great way to avoid missing registration dates.
Recreation Programs
Our department offers a variety of activities for young and old. Check out the Leisure Guide for specifics. Or for upcoming activities, we post fliers on each webpage (Seniors, Youth, Adults, etc). Current brochures are posted.
Tiny Tots Programs
A few years ago we introduced this program for two sports - Flag Football and Baseball. Tiny Tots is a program through the Start Smart Program created by the National Alliance for Youth Sports. It is a step-by-step approach that builds confidence and self-esteem, as well as making sports fun for children ages 3-6.
Reedley Community Parkway
The Reedley Parkway corridor/bike and pedestrian trail project is a continuous 2.6 mile, multi-use, non-motorized, tree-lined transportation corridor constructed on railbanked railroad right-of-way. The corridor ranges in widths from seventy-five feet (75') to one hundred feet (100') and follows a clearly defined route which extends in a northwest to southeast direction through the center of the City.
Senior Citizens
Our Leisure Guide explains most of our ongoing Senior Programs, but the best way to find out what is going on in our Senior Department is to drop by the Phil Hudson Room on the north end of the Community Center to find out first hand what we have to offer local seniors. A lunch program, classes, and a variety of trips, including casino trips and cruises are planned on a regular basis.
Special Event Permit Applications
If you or your group/organization are planning a large event, asking for street closure or other types of encroachments onto city property, you might need to apply for a Special Event Permit. Call the Community Services Office to see if your event qualifies as a Special Event. Our staff will be happy to help you with this process. Call us if you have any questions.
Facilities
We have rooms in a variety of sizes for wedding receptions, birthday parties, baby showers, classes, and meetings.
Parks
The City has a variety of parks. Call us for more information on use of City parks for your next event. We have sports parks, river parks, bandshells, pavilions, etc. Call our reservation specialist, Jessica Esquibel (559-637-4203) to check on availability and prices.
