Social Programs (TR)
The Therapeutic Recreation team’s social program provides Adults (Be Social) and Teens (Teens on the Town) events to hang out with their friends. Some of the events are housed within the Rockford Park District Facilities. These events include seasonal dances, karaoke nights, game nights (video and board games), movie nights, craft opportunities and cooking programs, to name a few. When we “hit the town”, we’ll check out community sporting events (IceHogs, Rock Valley College Basketball), the local museums, movies, bowling, going out to eat, check out our favorite parks for picnic fun, and of course, hang out at some of our favorite RPD spots. We are also open to suggestions. So, if you’re looking to get out on the town to be social, give us a call!
