August 20, 2020

With a purposeful objective of combining fitness and fun, the Prosper Parks and Recreation Department has revealed its program schedule for fall 2020. New classes include online fitness, Zumba, yoga, and nutrition workshops.

Often, the Parks and Recreation staff will cheerfully seek specific activities for the beloved senior community. To that end, the inaugural Prosper Senior Bowling League is currently forming. Bowlers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend the informational meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 25 at 2 p.m. at Strikz, 8769 Lebanon Road, in Frisco. Interested bowlers should call 972-569-1160 to RSVP and to obtain details. League play begins Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 1 p.m. at Strikz. A special and fun surprise awaits those who RSVP to the meeting in advance!

The fall schedule includes program topics that are returning by popular demand such as art, chess, tennis, soccer sparks, and advanced archery. A visit to www.ProsperParksandRec.org will provide dates, times, and location details for programs targeting youth, adults, and Seniors/Active Adults (ages 55+). Registration is now open, with the first classes beginning the week of Sept. 15.

Currently underway for persons age 55 and over are weekly virtual games held via Zoom. Games currently hosted, at no charge, are Texas Forty-Two, Trivia Time! and Bingo. For details about how to play or to request additional information, players should contact Trevor Helton, Recreation Services Supervisor, at thelton@prospertx.gov or call 972-569-1064.

“We’re excited to announce our fall 2020 line-up of programs,” says Dudley Raymond, Director of Parks and Recreation. “The challenges of 2020 have been the ‘wind beneath the wings’ of our staff and they’ve worked hard to develop safe activities that promote fun and fitness and meet the needs of the community at this time.”
