Imagination on the move with Rec n Roll

The Asheville Parks and Recreation program brings games, art, and summer fun into parks and neighborhoods.

Kids play on blocks and in plastic tunnels in a city park

There’s lots of fun in store this summer.

The summer days are rolling in — and so is Asheville Parks and Recreation. The vibrant Rec n Roll van is on the road again to bring games, art, and imagination to parks and neighborhoods around the city.

On Mondays, Imagination Days offer fun and free play. Little ones ages 1-5 can build with giant blocks, climb through tunnels, and join in games at parks all over the city. You don’t need to worry about signing up or registering beforehand, but adults do have to stay with their kids the whole time.

Wednesday’s chaotically creative themed days allow 2-5 year olds to complete challenges that inspire imagination. Wednesday Theme Days require advance registration and, at this time, are mostly waitlisted (but it’s worth joining the queue, just in case).

You don’t want to miss out on these delightful days — plus, regular Rec n Roll pop-ups — so keep an eye on the calendar.
