Welcome to Winter 2020

The Mission of the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District is to enrich the quality of life for our community by providing a variety of recreational activities, parks and facilities that promote health, wellness, learning and fun.

From the President Rick Hatcher, President, Board of Directors

H.A.R.D. is Growing in 2020 Happy New Year from the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District! 2019 kept us busy with twelve months of celebrations to commemorate H.A.R.D.’s 75th birthday (1944-2019). There were birthday parties, festivals, and special events – we know how to play H.A.R.D.! Thank you for participating and showing us what it means to celebrate our communities and partnerships. As we look ahead to 2020, we have even more to celebrate. Several Measure F1 Bond projects are underway that will transform many of our existing parks as well as create new parks. With the new Hayward Community Garden open, I can say We are Growing in 2020 with facilities and projects. You’ve been at the table from the very beginning to help envision new parks, community centers and amenities; we’ve heard you and you are seeing the results. This is the year to watch the first of these projects come to fruition and be enjoyed. Walk a trail, plant a garden, take a class or try something new in 2020! Come out and plant, grow and play with H.A.R.D.!

Foundation News Lowell Hickey, President | Pamela Russo, Executive Director People love H.A.R.D.! That’s the message our Foundation Board consistently hears and what makes raising funds for the District so fulfilling. Whether it’s donating to Sulphur Creek Nature Center’s animal hospital, sending a child to camp or contributing to H.A.R.D.’s latest treasure, Mia’s Dream Come True Playground, contributions from our community are truly appreciated! During this special time of year, we would like to share Mia’s story and how her family’s dream was to build an ultra-inclusive park for “all” to play…kids and adults alike. (See Mia’s Story on page 67.) Please join our efforts and become part of Mia’s Dream Come True Playground or give to one of your favorite H.A.R.D programs or services. What a great way to give back during the holidays. On behalf of the HARD Foundation, we wish you and yours a very happy and healthy Holiday Season! To donate to Mia’s Dream Come True or other programs of H.A.R.D., please go to haywardrec.org/donate or call (510) 888-0111.

Special Needs Program

The Sorensdale Recreation Center is a facility and program of the Hayward Area Recreation and Park District. The primary purpose of the program is to provide opportunities for people with an intellectual disability (i.e., developmental disabilities) to achieve greater independence. Programming focuses on abilities rather than disabilities and on a positive sense of self-worth. Individuals are encouraged to make choices and to take more control over their lives. A variety of educational, recreational, life skills, and community skills are offered. Program activities include functional math and literacy, computer skills, vocational training, communication skills, personal health and wellness, gardening, arts and crafts, woodshop, performing arts and music. Life skills learned in the classroom are practiced in the community. Criteria for program participants include Vendorization through the Regional Center of the East Bay (RCEB), being 22 years old or older or being between the ages of 18 and 22 and possessing a high school diploma, having the ability to independently feed oneself and to independently toilet oneself, and having no recent history of physical aggression. An interview and application process must be completed before entry into the program. Please call for more information if interested in attending program.
