Cedar Rapids' Rollin Recmobile begins its summer flight schedule Saturday

CEDAR RAPIDS – The Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation Department’s Rollin’ Recmobile begins its summer schedule Saturday as part of the city’s Resident Appreciation Day at the downtown Farmers’ Market. This year, two Rollin’ Recmobile vans will bring recreation equipment, games and staff to lead activities at parks and expand opportunities for children. Participation is free.

“We’re really excited to add a second van this year so we can be in the neighborhood more often. 21 park visits are scheduled each week, providing countless opportunities to keep kids occupied throughout the summer,” said Hashim Taylor, Parks and Recreation Department Director.

While the intention is to bring recreational programs close to neighborhoods to break down traffic barriers, kids can participate in each park as many times per week as they like. Activities include kickball, spikeball, ga-ball, an obstacle course, bouncy castle, karaoke, lawn bowls, dances and competitions. New activities are planned every week.

Organizations and partner groups will also join Rollin’ Recmobile on specific days to provide information and additional activities. The Recmobile is supported by the City of Cedar Rapids, GreenState Credit Union, Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation, Cedar Rapids Kiwanis and Cedar Rapids Parks Foundation.

The Rollin’ Recmobiles follow a consistent schedule each week. Schedule adjustments and activities will be announced via CRNewsNow. In the event of severe weather or tornado clocks, the park stop will be postponed or cancelled.
