Teen Night, Teen Open Gym, and Hangtime at Walltown

Walltown Park Recreation Center has an excellent array of programming for teenagers. One of our teen’s favorite activities is basketball. On Sundays from 1 p.m. -2:30 p.m. we offer Teen Open Gym. On Fridays from 7 p.m. -10 p.m. we offer Teen Night. Both offer access to pick-up basketball games in the gymnasium complete with a scoreboard and staff supervision. Hangtime is every weekday from 3 p.m. -5 p.m. and gives teens the freedom to play sports in the gymnasium (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) or hangout in the teen room (Tuesday and Thursday) where they can play pool, air hockey, PS3, Xbox 360, or Wii video games. All three programs are completely free of charge!

 If you know any teens that need a safe and fun place to hang out then send them over to Walltown!
