The City of Long Beach announced via press release Dec. 18 that, during the school winter break, officials are offering free youth and teen recreation programs at various parks throughout the city. Parents and guardians also have the option of registering their child for an El Dorado Nature Center workshop for a low-cost fee, officials wrote.

“Winter Fun Days”
The City of Long Beach Parks, Recreation and Marine Department is offering “Winter Fun Days,” which are scheduled from 11am to 5pm on Dec. 28 and Dec. 31, and Jan. 2 through Jan. 4. The parks will be closed on Jan. 1, 2019.
