Highlands Park Play Area Renovation

Ensuring quality living through San Carlos Parks & Recreation

Formerly the site of the athletic fields for San Carlos High School, the land for Highlands Park was obtained in 1986. The children’s play area was completed in 1998. The City of San Carlos, together with the Parks and Recreation Foundation of San Carlos, has identified Highlands Park Play Area Renovation as their next fundraising project. The Foundation successfully raised over $400,000 in private donations for Burton Park’s Phase I renovations, unveiled in 2009, and $250,000 in private donations for Burton Park’s Phase II renovations, completed in 2014. The City of San Carlos and the Parks and Recreation Foundation are seeking community partners to assist with raising funds to complete the Highlands Park Play Area Renovation. The project cost is $750,000 for the playground area. New restrooms will also be installed at a cost of $500,000. Features of the playground renovation will include a new pathway as the entrance into the play area; gated tot entrance; concrete seat wall; poured in place rubber safety surfacing; upgraded Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) path to the upper field; sun deck and enhanced play features, including an Oodle swing, tree house with bridge connection and independent climbing pieces. The completion of this project is anticipated around summer 2017.

Recreation classes for little ones offer many benefits. Early exposure to music helps develop areas of the brain that involve language and reasoning. Students of the arts learn to think creatively and solve problems. Dance helps children mature physically, emotionally, and socially. Sports will build motor skills, teach responsibility and teamwork, and encourage a healthy lifestyle. Kids that are active are more likely to continue being active as they get older. Parks Make

This two hour presentation will provide valuable information on topics such as creating a family/office disaster plan, assembling home/office and portable disaster supply kit, sheltering in place, evacuation procedures and preparing for and responding to specific disasters. Since we can only do our best to prevent man-made disasters and terrorism, and since we certainly can’t control “mothernature,” it’s only a matter of time before a minor or major incident occurs in or around our immediate area. When a disaster happens and Police, Fire and Emergency Services are overwhelmed, will you be prepared to care for yourself, family, friends and neighbors? In all places, home, work or school, it pays to be ready and prepared to deal with all types of natural and man-made disasters. Here on the Peninsula, we are subject to power outages, earthquakes, fires, floods, severe storms, extreme heat, gas leaks, plane crashes, disease and/or flu pandemics, and a host of other possible situations. Free! Schedule a presentation for your business, group, or club today. Email to cert@redwoodcity.org, enter “Are you Ready?” in your subject line.

Senior exercise is an important part of the health and wellness of seniors. It helps increase your metabolism, energy levels and alertness. Research shows that those suffering from chronic illness benefit from exercise even if it is done while sitting in a chair. Chair exercises are great for older adults, those with disabilities, poor balance or anyone who has trouble standing or getting on the floor to do exercises. They are always gentle on the body and generally safe for most people to do. It is always a good idea to talk to your doctor before beginning a new exercise program, but you are not likely to injure yourself doing any of these exercises. Bring a 5 lb. dumbbell weight with you to the first class. Be sure to wear loose clothing and comfortable, supportive shoes. No cost. M/W/F 9:00-10:00am Ongoing ACC

Attitudinal Healing

Attitudinal Healing is based on the principle that it is not other people or situations that cause us distress. Rather, it is our own thoughts and attitudes that are responsible for our distress and the actions we take as a result of those thoughts and attitudes can hurt us. Healing results when we concentrate on changing our own attitudes rather than trying to change the attitudes of others. The goal of Attitudinal Healing is self-healing in the face of each life challenge. Jennifer Lee Ho, is a trained and certified Peer Group facilitator for Attitudinal Healing. Join this Healing Circle by calling Jennifer at (650) 619-6163 or jenniferleeho@gmail.com. There is no fee for attendance. (No class 7/4.)
