Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation Department’s Therapeutic Recreation section has much to offer! There are courses offered every season of the year for people with intellectual, physical and/or emotional disabilities. Craft classes, indoor recreation, outdoor sports skills, bingo and walking programs for adults with disabilities are offered on different mornings throughout the winter, spring and fall. Therapeutic Line Dance is offered seasonally with evening sessions for individuals with disabilities. For those currently enrolled at the Chester House, monthly craft and recreation programs are available on-site. The goal of the Therapeutic Recreation section is to get people moving, healthy, and enjoying what their community has to offer.
On the first Friday of every month, adult survivors of brain injury and their family are invited to attend the social group T.G.I. F. Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation teams up with Henrico County Division of Recreation and Parks to offer an evening of dining, music, activities and good times with friends. To get on the mailing list contact Aleana McClellan.
In the spring and fall Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation holds a dance for individuals 16 and older with disabilities. The Knights of Columbus Council #6189 sponsor the event, where participants can expect an evening of dancing, dinner and fun. The Knights also invite parents and staff to enjoy light refreshments next door to the dance. The spring dance is typically a formal prom and the fall dance features a Halloween theme. Please contact Aleana McClellan if you would like to get on the mailing list.
