How can you help?

Children At Play every child can play

Learning to swim, hitting a homerun, learning to dance and making friends are just a few the memories that last us a lifetime. Help a less fortunate child experience those same life-changing memories and participate in our recreation programs. Join Gainesville Parks and Recreation and let's make sure every child can play. Gainesville Parks and Recreation pledges $1 from every program registration towards this cause. 100% of your gift goes to benefit a child in need.  No amount is too small, but the rewards are huge.
