Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation Department to Launch Rollin' Recmobile

Following review of health guidelines for youth programming, the Parks and Recreation Department has decided to cancel youth programs scheduled to start in June, due to the inability to social distance and keep staff and participants safe.

However, the Rollin’ Recmobile, a mobile recreation program that will bring recreation opportunities to neighborhoods, is tentatively scheduled to launch on June 22. Rollin’ Recmobile will operate six days a week and visit two to three parks each day. A schedule of park stops will be available on the Parks & Recreation website (crrec.org) when the program begins. The Rollin’ Recmobile provides flexibility to offer youth recreation activities while following health guidelines for COVID-19. During the initial phase, families will be able to pick up projects and activities to do together, in the park or at home. As social distancing requirements ease, participants will gather in small groups for activities a safe distance apart. Finally, when safe to do so, the program will provide large group recreation including sports games, fitness classes, reading opportunities, displaying animals from Old MacDonald’s Farm, and more.

The Rollin’ Recmobile will stop at Bever, Cedar Valley, Cherry Hill, Cleveland, Daniels, Hayes, Hidder, Greene Square, Jacolyn, Jones, Noelridge, Redmond, and Time Check Parks. Each of the thirteen park stops will include free food options and an opportunity to use free WIFI from the van. The program is possible due to a $10,698 grant from the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation and $6,000 donation from Cedar Rapids Kiwanis.
