What is your idea of recreation? Odds are, you will find something fun for you and your family at a Coastline Recreational Facility swimming pools, tennis court, aquatic facility, soccer field, bowling area, basketball court or playground. Want something different? How about yoga or dance? Just want a quiet afternoon in a park? We have picnic tables and barbecue areas.
Rather than your having children get excited about the newest computer game, television show or smartphone app, get them excited about being in a recreational activity! Kids love being granted the freedom to explore and investigate their surroundings—especially when those surroundings are full of trees to climb, dirt to play in and insects, twigs, rocks and other specimens to collect. Encourage them to get out there and explore together and suggest games like hunting for treasure, or a nature scavenger hunt to keep their interest piqued and their little minds buzzing! Doing it together will give them confidence and reassurance that this is a safe space to play in while also building unforgettable memories together.
Recreation is a necessary part of life that refreshes and rejuvenates a person's body and mind. Recreational activities help a person relax and decrease the effects of work-related and interpersonal stressors. Physical recreational activities, such as playing basketball or volleyball with friends, help to keep a person's body in shape and serve to initiate close bonds with other like-minded individuals.
