Its Summer in Memphis - No-Cost, Low-Cost Summer Activity Options

. Its “Summer in Memphis” guide details the many free and low-cost programs that are available to our youth. The guide will be available at community centers and libraries next week but is already live on our website, Summer in Memphis (Click Link to Retrieve).  And we’ll be sharing more activities as we learn of them.

You've often heard, Mayor Strickland talk about the importance of intervening in the lives of young people. Now that school is out, that's even more important.  Mayor Strickland has created several initatives

Community Centers will be hosting summer camps all season long, but that’s not all of what we’re doing. Our community centers will be open and accommodating, and thanks to an initiative I’ve been working on with Interim Police Director Michael Rallings, they will be safe places. The police officers who had been in our schools are being reassigned to community centers this summer to ensure safety.

Beyond the camps, the city has a summer meals program at 25 parks; free greens fees for those 17 and under at our golf courses; free swim lessons at Ed Rice, Lester, Westwood, Willow, Bickford & Hickory Hill pools; and there's even a disc golf course where Libertyland once was at the Fairgrounds. And yes, our pools will open June 11.
