Recess For All Ages – Break Time recreation guide hits newsstands July 22, and offers activities and inspiration the whole family can enjoy

Just because school is back in session, it doesn’t mean the fun has to stop! Chandler is a recess-ready City, offering plenty of playgrounds, activities and inspiration the whole family can enjoy.
Break away from the ordinary and pick up the City’s quarterly Break Time recreation guide, available to the public starting July 22, and come out and play. The fall session covers September, October and November and features a variety of leisure and lifestyle classes and programs for people of all ages.
In the spirit of family togetherness, here are five picks for family-friendly thrills this fall:
  1. Test the Waters – For aquatic-based fun consider Aqua Fit classes featuring water aerobics and lap swim.
  2. Bug Out – Celebrate beautiful insects during the annual Dragonfly & Butterfly Bash. Enjoy guided nature walks, hands-on crafts, and presentations for all ages. (Saturday, Sept. 24)
  3. Stretch Your Limits – Yogis of all abilities can find physical and mental nourishment at any one of the City’s recreation centers. Classes range in intensity from soothing to strenuous.
  4. Get Your Wheels Turning – The calorie-torching qualities of indoor cycling are hard to beat and a great way to increase strength and improve your cardiovascular health. Move and groove to superb routines. 
  5. Make Some Racquet – Get your heart rate up and your blood pumping with cardio tennis. Each session includes a variety of fast-paced drills and live ball play.
Printed copies of the recreation guide are available at City facilities and a digital version can be accessed online at Priority registration for residents opens 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 6, with general non-resident registration beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 12.
