Staff in the park and recreation department of the town of Marrana are excited about the summer of 2022, offering citizens a variety of recreation programs for young people, adults and the elderly.
As we continue to move away from the pandemic, our top priority is always the safety of park visitors and program participants. As park and recreation experts, we always see first-hand how important parks, recreational facilities, natural resource reserves and trail systems are to the overall health and wellness of our community. We understand that parks and trail systems provide the outdoor environment that residents need to maintain their physical and mental health. Riding any of the trail systems for morning walks, hikes, horseback riding, or biking can make a significant contribution to your physical and mental health.
The staff are working hard to prepare for the summer months and are pleased to offer the following recreational opportunities:
Enjoy the Marana Public Pool at Oramei Khan District Park. Aquatics staff offers an extensive program schedule, including free open and lap swims, from Memorial Day weekends to Labor Day weekends. From 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Friday, May 27, the swimming season begins with a fun and free event celebrating the 50th anniversary of Marana Pool. Marana Pool 50th Jubilee is a fun way for the entire community to celebrate the history of Marana Pool. Aquatics staff offers plenty of fun water activities for participants to enjoy.
Another free event in Maranapur is scheduled for June 4th to sponsor the #SplashSavvy Summer Kickoff. This is our water safety and drowning prevention program. The event will feature a relay of swimming races between the Marrana Police Station, the Northwest Fire Department and the town of Lifeguard in Marrana. There are lots of grocery stores, various community information booths, and emergency vehicles where kids can ask the first responder how to operate the emergency vehicle, and perhaps even the opportunity to sit behind the steering wheel!
From 7am to 9am on June 18th, we will be hosting an annual aquathlon for those who enjoy competitive swimming and running events. This is a fun family event for both young people and adults. See event category. runsignup.com/Race/AZ/Marana/RUNMARANAAquathlon
We also offer American Red Cross lifeguard training, youth swimming lessons, American Red Cross junior lifeguard courses with first aid / CPR / AED certification programs, and Swim the Cruz Swimmers Challenge. Splash Pads in both Crossroads District Park and Graden Farms Community Park are open from early April, daily from 8am to 7pm, 7 days a week, and mid-October. ..
