The Oak Ridge Recreation and Parks Department will host the 3rd Annual Family Day at the Civic Center on February 14, 2015, noon to 4:00 pm. All activities except public swim and concessions are free. Concession items will include hot dogs, nachos, chips, juice and soft drinks. A free cookie decorating activity will be offered.

Discounted public swim times, in 30 minute increments, will be offered for $1. Children 2 and under are free. Public swim is open to everyone and is scheduled at the indoor swimming pool from 12:30 – 1:00; 1:15 – 1:45; 2 – 2:30; 2:45 – 3:15. Lifeguards will be on duty. If parents wish to supervise their children from the pool deck, they must pay admission and be dressed in swimming attire. If children do not need direct parental supervision, the pool can be viewed through glass windows in the snack bar and lobby areas.

Family activities will be offered throughout the Civic Center. They will include pool, ping pong, foosball, crafts, cookie decorating, face painting and board games. Active games, including family versions of volleyball and basketball are planned for the gymnasium. 

Volunteers are needed to assist with all activities. Volunteer t-shirts are available for all volunteers who sign-up in advance.
