Revere Recreation Update: A Successful, Exciting Summer

July 26, 2017

The Revere Recreation summer program has been a tremendous success in 2017. We are excited to offer programming for Revere's children and families and look forward to more great events to come.

Recent Highlights:

  • Revere Rec hosted a successful, sold out field trip to Fenway Park with 50 people. Revere kids had a chance to tour Fenway, have dinner at Pizzeria Uno, and attend a Red Sox game.
  • The summer camp continues to serve about 90 children per day. The camp completed two field trips - one to Smolak Farms and one to Showcase Cinemas
  • Our free basketball Skills and Drills program on Fridays has been serving upwards of 80 youth per week.
  • Woody and Buzz from Toy Story stopped by Oak Island Park last week and gave much-needed exposure to the new park. Character appearances at parks throughout the summer have been a big hit with some of the younger kids.
  • Revere Recreation's partnership with the nonprofit Raising a Reader has been extremely productive. Each week, Revere Recreation and Raising a Reader are giving 50-60 books away to Revere youth.

Today's schedule of events (July 26, 2017) is an example of the great programming available every day throughout the summer - visit for a full schedule!
