Hoover, Alabama - Parks & Recreation


Please keep us posted on any curfews in the City that would result in abbreviated hours at the REC?
Are there any plans to clean equipment on a regular daily/hourly schedule? Also adding hand sanitizer to all the areas/ rooms? Seems to be a Petri dish of germs this morning. Do you have a protocol in place for the Coronavirus?

Oh what Fun we had!!!🎅🏻🤶🏻
Great Group❤️
We accidentally picked up someone’s cell phone while at the Splash Pad today (Thursday, Sept 12). If you lost your phone at the Splash Pad, please DM me. I would love to return it to its owner... we are so sorry!

Saturday, 9/22/18, our van window was smashed out and my purse was stolen from the vehicle. We were at the Lock Haven dog park in Hoover, on the edge of Vestavia. This happened sometime between 2-4pm. There was a Hoover policewoman patrolling the area the entire time we were there, so whoever did this was quick in their actions. We never heard the glass break and nobody else saw anything suspicious. The cops told us this was the 5th incident at that location recently. Please be aware, and leave your valuables at home if possible. Our van was locked and the security system was engaged, but since the door was not opened the alarm never went off. Please share this post, and be on the lookout if you go to this area.
I mean, I’m looking forward to the exercise classes… but here is one of my early impressions! 😉
If you are looking for a fun extracurricular for your child this summer, you can try out diving!

I am currently working on getting a schedule together for summer diving at the Hoover Rec Center. This is a springboard dive team that competes locally in Birmingham during the summer. We are open to all ages. If this sounds like something your child may want to do (or adult) please fill out this interest form! My kids have been diving for 5 years and love it!
This is not a commitment but just a way to help us plan pricing and coaching needs .

Has the pool's heater been fixed yet?
Looks like the pool heater is being serviced again... Water colder than usual and there is a sign at the front desk informing swimmers.
