Mayor’s Message With spring soon upon us and summer approaching, the cold, snowy days of winter are a distant memory. But for those who attended Redmond Lights, you know that 2012 is Redmond’s Centennial year. All year long the community will celebrate our 100 years as a city. Many of our events throughout the year will “tip their hat” to the Centennial celebrating our past, present and future. Please look for all the events as they are listed on www.100years.redmond.gov. This Spring/Summer Recreation Guide includes some of those events as well as our great classes, camps, and events that provide your family with affordable, fun, and healthy alternatives. Our fitness, sports and equestrian programs continue to provide ways to keep you fit and healthy. The Summer Day Camp schedule is full of affordable half and full day options serving youth from three to 19 years old. With programs from art, drama, and riding to sports, science, and technology – you are sure to find a program your child will love. Also planned is the outdoor movie series geared for teens and their families held in various parks throughout the summer, the 9th Annual Big Truck Day at Farrel-McWhirter Park for the little ones, and Redmond’s Great Day of Play returning for its second year. This family friendly event provides a variety of playful activities, an opportunity to try something new and a chance to find out what the Recreation Division is cooking up for fall. This year’s Derby Days celebration on the weekend of July 13-15 is not to be missed. We will celebrate Redmond’s Centennial throughout 2012 and Derby Days is no exception. Many Centennial themed activities will create a very special weekend for your family. Come to Friday Night Live on July 13, our great music festival with food, activities, and a beer and wine garden. Saturday will begin with the Kids and Grand Parades and then continues with music, food, entertainment, and bicycle races throughout the day. Check the Derby Days website at www.redmondderbydays. com for all the up-to-date entertainment.

All 98053 zip codes are outside the city limits, as well as some 98052 zip codes.

Age Requirements To ensure a successful program experience for your child, program age requirements are established by the instructors and the recreation program coordinators. Appropriate age requirements are determined for each program based on developmental guidelines and staff experience working with the children in each of the program areas. By staying firm on these age requirements, the integrity of the program is maintained for the children and families who are the correct age.
