Mobile Rec Program

Mobile Recreation is a new program brought to you by the San Francisco Recreation & Parks Department. The primary goal is to introduce youth to recreational activities that are fun, challenging, and encourage them to “Get out and Play” now and during their entire lives. Activities include the mobile rock-climbing wall, skateboarding/BMX on Fresh Park equipment (ramps, rails and manual pads), disc golf, and sea kayaking. Equipment for these activities is transported to Recreation Centers, Parks and Playgrounds all over San Francisco on Saturdays throughout the school year. In addition, fifteen afterschool enrichment programs are visited on Wednesday afternoons for a special Mobile Recreation Program specifically designed for a variety of SF youth. The San Francisco Parks Alliance and the Coca-Cola Foundation have generously provided support for this new program.
