Are you looking for the perfect gift for the college students in your life? Ridgefield Parks & Recreation’s Home for the Holidays Membership will help them stay in shape over their winter break. They can swim laps, workout in the Wellness Center, and enjoy group fitness classes. With the proof of a college ID, students can purchase a one-month membership.

Come and take your holiday photos with our tree decorated by the Ridgefield Women’s Club. This is a perfect photo opportunity for your holiday cards. The tree will be available during Recreation Center hours for the month of December.
