SUMMER! It’s that much-anticipated time of year again! Time to break out the swim suits, beach gear, and enjoy the great outdoors. Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department offer so many programs to help you get out and enjoy the outdoors and at little to no cost. Here are a few of the activities they offer:
The Better Boro Project – “The Better Boro Project is a city-wide initiative designed to promote healthy eating, encourage outdoor recreation, and provide unique and accessible wellness activities”
As part of this project they are offering several activities that are free of charge such as Zumba on June 13th or Boat Day on June 17th. You can get a full list of all activities on their website at http://www.murfreesborotn.gov/index.aspx?NID=797.
Family Camp Out – This sounds like a fun adventure. You and your family can camp out at Barfield Crescent Park during select weekends. As an attendee, you will get to participate in activities set up by the Murfreesboro Parks and Recreation Department. The cost is $10 per adult, $5 for children ages 5-12, and free to children 4 and under.
Outdoor Activities – Murfreesboro Parks and Recreations Department offers several programs to fit any lifestyle. They offer kayaking and canoeing outings down the Stones River for a fee of $15. They also have several opportunities to enjoy hiking. You can get more information by visiting the outdoor activities page at http://tn-murfreesboro.civicplus.com/index.aspx?NID=720.
StorPlace Self Storage is a company that encourages family time and good overall health. Working for this company I have been able to enjoy my family while still being employed. All of our stores are open Monday through Saturday from 9:00am to 5:30pm allowing employees to have time for fun in the afternoons and on Sundays. I often check the Murfreesboro Parks and Recreations Department page to find ideas for activities that my family and I would enjoy. I encourage you to do the same and take advantage of the wonderful programming they offer.
