Springtime is always an exciting time in the Leisure Services Department and our Park System.  Leisure Services is currently taking reservations for our youth tennis summer program slated for June, July and August. On May 10th we are also introducing a Starter Tournament for ages 10, 12 and 14, for more information about these programs please visit the City website or call (407) 539-0042.

New this season, we have introduced a Middle School and High School Open Gym program on Thursday evenings from April 10th through May 29th. In addition, we are hosting month long Basketball Fundamentals Clinics for 2nd through 6th graders on Tuesdays from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and on Saturdays at 9:00 a.m. The clinics will begin in April and continue through August.

For those of you who enjoy walking, and for others as well, please check out our newly installed walking paths at Minnehaha Park and Lake Lily Park. You will find an information sign explaining walking distances at those properties and 1/10th mile markers have been placed along the paths to help you build a walking program designed just for you. Installed as a park of Maitland Walks, these paths will complement a 2-mile course in Maitland Center. Thanks to Healthy Maitland, Winter Park Health Foundation and Florida Hospital for their support in making these paths a reality.
