Summer is just around the corner! It’s the best time to get outside in Morgan Hill to enjoy the weather and outside spaces. We can’t wait for the fun programs, splashing in the pools, and enjoying the warm weather in Morgan Hill! In Morgan Hill, we have wonderful parks and open spaces, perfect for play, fitness, and gathering with friends. There are also a plethora of biking and walking trails throughout the city. Be sure to view the Bike/Pedestrian program and safety information available at www.morganhill.ca.gov/bikeped.

Every March, Morgan Hill’s Parks and Recreation team releases the Summer Recreation Activity Guide. The recreation activity guide is packed with tons of fun programs, camps, and activities to make your summer the best summer ever! Now’s the time to start thinking about all of the recreation programs and activities you want to be a part of.

Whether you’re young or young at heart, there is something inside the recreation activity guide for you! This year, there are over 30 different camps to choose from, covering a variety of interests and topics, such as junior lifeguard camp, sports camps, dance camp, and recreation preschool camp. In addition to camps, there are a variety of programs running throughout the summer. Registration opens on March 20, 2023 at 8:00 a.m. at www.mhreconline.com! You can view courses and programs for the summer beginning on Friday, March 17, 2023 at www.morganhill.ca.gov/recguide.
