- Dare to Care
Dare to Care Food Bank is proud to partner with local, non-profit after-school programs to offer free evening meals to children in our community through our Kids Cafe program. Children (18 and under) can receive a warm, nutritious meal in a safe environment at 9 of our Community Centers.  In addition to receiving a meal, each child has the opportunity to participate in academic and extracurricular activities.

- Youth Chat With LMPD
Each month a designated community center will host Chat With LMPD.  This is a series of public open-dialogue discussions designed to give youth the opportunity to hear from and talk with local law enforcement officials. 


 - Rec On The Go!
Recreation on the Go! allows us to bring our activities to your door!  We offer clinics and competitions, such as for flag football, kickball and basketball, to improve team performance, strength, positive thinking and teamwork.  Also, Recreation on the Go offers extras that may be added as additional activities to any program we offer for an additional price, such as a 50 yard dash, face painting, a balloon art, and much more! 

What's In Play
Our Program Guide showcases a variety of recreational opportunities and amenities to help stay healthy, keep fit and have fun! Louisville Parks and Recreation offers classes and programming in 17 of our unique facilities for people of all ages. Covering everything from fine arts to sports, and catering to toddlers, teenagers, adults and seniors, we want to inspire families in our Louisville communities to stay active and be involved. Your journey starts here with us!
