Summer Parks &


Recreation Programs

2012

Welcome From Mayor Joe Sinnott

Erie- A Great Lake,


Great City and
Great Life!

ummer 2016 will be a sensational season here in the Flagship City! We are very excited about
this summers recreational programs and events! The 2016 Summer Parks and Recreation guide
is an excellent resource for Eries youth, families and residents, and it is our hope that this guide will
encourage active participation in the multitude of programs offered throughout the city. Our parks,
schools and community centers provide a variety of activities that integrate people of all ages.
The All An Acts Footlights Theatre Program, open to all City of Erie students ages 6 through 18, offers
an outstanding opportunity to share their talents and be a part of the 42nd annual summer production.
This summer, students will rehearse and prepare Disneys Beauty & The Beast in an eight-week program
that will culminate the students talent and hard work when they perform a live show on August 3rd,
4th, & 5th at Strong Vincent High School. Plans for the 26th year of Spoons Summer Basketball League
are well underway. The league offers Eries youth a chance to develop skills while being coached by Eries
most passionate volunteers and community leaders. Swimming lessons, Youth Tennis, and
Junior Golf are just a few of the many exciting, affordable, and safe activities offered for weeks
of fun summer learning.
The City of Erie is fortunate to have prodigious community partners that include Highmark Blue
Cross Blue Shield and the Housing Authority of the City of Erie. These partnerships bring a wealth of
recreational opportunities and special events that contribute to our thriving community. The City is
also grateful for the collaborating financial institutions that have joined together to bring the Sounds
of Summer Concert Series to area senior living facilities for citizens and neighbors to enjoy. All residents
and guests of Erie are invited to grab a lawn chair and catch a divine Sounds of Summer music concert,
free of charge. A detailed list of dates and locations can be found inside.
Supervised sports clinics, golf and tennis lessons, day camps, arts and crafts, Tai Chi and walking clinics
provides something fun for everyone! The summer recreational programs are specifically designed to
provide a wide variety of exciting activities for all to enjoy. Summer youth rec programs provide Eries
youth with a fun, safe, and productive environment to learn and grow, all while developing their skills,
self-confidence, and lasting friendships. We encourage you to make the commitment and get active this
summer by enjoying all that this great city has to offer! Summer 2016 will be an exciting time for families
and residents of Erie!

Fun for the whole

As a long-standing partner of the City of Erie, Highmark


Blue Cross Blue Shield continues to support efforts that create
stronger, healthier communities. We are proud to again have the
opportunity to partner with the city by serving as a sponsor of
this years Summer Parks and Recreation Programs.
Through our support, we hope to encourage children to adopt
healthier lifestyles through physical activity, as well as develop
higher self-esteem and lifelong recreational skills. This program is
so important to the community because it provides our children
with the chance to participate in activities that allow them to play
together, while learning the importance of teamwork.
On behalf of Highmark, I would like to thank the City of Erie for
continuing to promote healthy lifestyles.
