The Nealon Park Nature Play Area, an All Abilities Playground will be the first of its kind in Menlo Park and will provide hours of enjoyment.

13th ANNUAL

BLOCK PARTY

The highly anticipated Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan Update is expected to be completed in June 2019. The plan incorporates the feedback from numerous community outreach activities from the past nine months which engaged almost 2,500 people. The plan is intended to provide a road map to guide the decision making in helping the City maintain, manage and develop its park, open space and recreation facility system for the next 20 years, and provide the community with the recreational opportunities that they desire. The plan’s vision is to Connect Menlo Park through a sustainable, equitable and accessible system of parks, recreation facilities, and programs that reflect the City’s character, and encourage multi-generational interactions. The Goals of the Parks and Recreation Facilities Master Plan include: •

Parks and Facilities for All of Menlo Park

Unique and Distinctive Parks and Facilities

Operational Efficiency & Economic Feasibility

Creative Solutions

Environmental Sustainability

Summer Camps PONY CAMP AT PASTORINO FARMS (Ages 3–12)

For beginning level riders. Children have so much fun on the farm with our ponies and animals! Our campers learn basic equine care - riding technique, grooming and safety with our gentle ponies. Our “surprise animal of the day” featuring a new baby animal or miniature cow or alpaca is everyone’s favorite! Whether collecting eggs from chickens, cuddling baby piglets and goats, cleaning up after the ponies or doing an art related project - our hands-on activities help children flourish. Our campers tend to grow in self-esteem, confidence and compassion towards not only animals, but to each other. Before/After Care is available for $10.00/hour. Please let your friends and classmates know of this wonderful opportunity. Camp activities and programs structured to age/level of each child. Camp Cancellation: Subject to low enrollment at management discretion. May join another session.

TENNIS Menlo Swim & Sport is proud to announce our partnership with Kim Grant Tennis Academy to provide tennis lessons for all ages in the Menlo Park community. Our partnership strongly believes all children should have an equal opportunity to explore their talents and motivations through sports. There is one central element to everything we do with our Junior students: to teach and inspire. That’s it! That is the heart of a great tennis instructor. We teach your children do develop their tennis talent and inspire them to foster their motivations; both in tennis and in life in general. Whether your child is interested in tennis recreationally, aspiring to become a professional player, or anywhere in between, we are committed to helping each student get the most out of their tennis experience in a fun and positive environment. We do not measure our success as an organization by the number of trophies our students win or by the number of children that are enrolled in our classes. We measure our success by the number of smiles on their faces, by the sportsmanship shown to competitors, by the positive remarks about our Coaching Staff and by the motivation to improve as a player and a person. Below are some of the basic tenets that are ever-present in our Junior lessons we have to ensure your children are getting the most from their time with us: Customization – students learning at their own pace Engagement – plenty of physical movement Challenge – promoting risk taking & experimentation Camaraderie – students motivation one another Laughter – students enjoying themselves and their classes! Please check our website: www.menloswim/tennis.com for more information on dates, times, levels, coaching and prices.

FOLKDANCES OF HUNGARY & TRANSYLVANIA This class teaches authentic Hungarian, Romanian, and Gypsy dances. These folkdances, centuries old, resemble ballroom dances on steroids. They are still done today at dance clubs throughout Hungary by people of all ages, so if you plan to visit Hungary this class is for you. We do mostly couple dances, but also include some men’s and women’s dances. Todd Wagner will teach the men’s parts and Sarah Tull will teach the women’s parts. Teaching will be at a beginning level.

Community Services JOINT POINT ◊ FOREVER FIT This class has beginnings as an experimental “posture class” for dancers. Marianne Crowder taught it for over 50 years in and around Menlo Park and eventually called it “Mariantics”. This is a “no pain, no sweat” exercise form, with strong roots in modern dance and liberally sprinkled with exercises designed to correct bad posture and its negative effects. Of course, the muscles are involved, but this class is not about strength training or building aerobic capacity – it is all about joint health and feeling really good! Cyndi Jung, long-time student and admirer of founder Marianne Crowder, has been teaching since 2009. $10 drop-in fee. For more information, call (650) 678-5487. No class 6/17, 7/8, 7/29, 8/5.

Restorative yoga is a practice that combines supported poses with gentle yoga stretches using props. Gentle yoga is a wonderful way to warm the muscles and loosen tension from the body. The movements are slow and steady and allows time for you to adjust and go within as you flow with the breath. We will use mats, blankets, bolsters, straps and eye pillows to support this practice. Relief from chronic pain, headaches or just winding down at the end of a busy work week are some of the benefits to experience. Restorative yoga is suitable for all abilities and levels of practice.
