The summer season is one of constant adventure. Mount Pleasant Recreation offers classes and events to increase learning when children are out of the classroom and families find more freedom to explore. The community’s natural setting is one visitors cherish for a weekend but residents can relish all year long. This summer, keep your mind and body “IN MOTION” and find some hidden summer treasures in this historic town.
1. Dance the long days away.
With Mount Pleasant Recreation classes like Parent Child Ballroom Sampler and Mom & Me Ballet, you can waltz into the summer nights together and put on an end of summer backyard recital, complete with strung lights and homemade costumes.
2. Team up with your family.
Take advantage of Park West Recreation Complex or R.L. Jones Center Fields and gather neighbors for a family vs. family kickball, soccer or football game. Families can also take it to the courts with a friendly game of tennis at Mount Pleasant Tennis Center.
3. Cook with a fresh catch.
With classes like Creative Crabbing for the Family and Family Fishing Fun, families can serve a seafood dinner straight from the waters that surround them. Add summer produce like local tomatoes and squash from the Mount Pleasant Farmer's Market, for classic Lowcountry cuisine.
4. Play at Every Park in Town.
Make a Mount Pleasant Park bucket list including Pitt Street Bridge, Waterfront Park, Park West Recreation Complex Trails and Dog Park, Alhambra Hall and Park and Shem Creek Recreation Park and try to cross each off the list before school starts.
5. Unwind by the water.
Family Fun Nights at R.L. Jones Center (June 10, July 15 and August 12) and Park West Pool (July 8 and August 19) invite residents to relax after work for an open play night, pool toys welcome. For a supercharged splash complete with music and games, head to Summer Splash Bash and Family Fun night at Park West Pool, June 2.
