Ready, Set, Rec!

The City of Tucson Mayor and City Council and Tucson Parks and Recreation are excited to announce a new mobile recreation program, Ready, Set, Rec! This engaging program was made possible by recommendation from Ward 5 Council Member Richard Fimbres to use federal CARES Act funds to acquire six vans, equipment, personal protective equipment (PPE), handwashing stations, and traffic cones or barricades to bring recreation to the community. This effort is backed by the mayor and all city council members. 

Safety of the community and employees is a top priority for the City. Each program will have limited participants, masks will be required, as well as physical distancing. Equipment will be cleaned between uses and prior to the activities taking place. Each vehicle will be equipped with PPE to keep both staff and the public safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, including first aid kits, masks, disinfecting wipes, and hand sanitizer. We ask that if you are feeling sick, stay home and follow all other CDC guidelines to keep safe. 

General Play is for all ages, includes corn hole, board games, hula hoops, giant chess, giant checkers, giant Connect 4, cards, music, Mexican train, dominoes, giant Jenga, giant ring toss, walking sticks, etc.
