CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — When the COVID-19 pandemic started to affect Chesterfield County, and services were forced to modify, the county’s Parks and Recreation Department wasted no time to pivot its programs by offering virtual recreation programs.
Since March 17, the Parks and Recreation Department has been producing virtual recreation programming for the public. Programming includes activities, tours, classes and videos all organized into different categories, such as family activities, history, nature, outdoor activities and fitness. New activities are posted daily, Monday-Friday.
“Although our recreation centers, nature center, and satellite locations are closed, the department has adapted to the new environment,” said Dr. James Worsley, Chesterfield Parks and Recreation director. “The recreation staff have done an excellent job repositioning services to a virtual format while maintaining quality programs for the community.”
The virtual recreation programs can be found on the Parks and Recreation Virtual Recreation Program webpage, on the department’s Facebook page and on the Parks and Recreation playlist on the county’s YouTube channel.
