Recreation Programs

Kzoo Parks also offers many youth programs throughout the year including afterschool programs, tutoring, athletics, sports, field trips, and summer camps. Adults are welcome to join our recreational Volleyball and Softball leagues too!

Each year, Kzoo Parks publishes a guide detailing all programs and events in store for the year. The Kzoo Parks Activity Guide is available for free from the Kzoo Parks office and other city offices. You can also view the activity guide online. Plan ahead to make sure you don’t miss any of our community’s great events, programs, or registration deadlines!
