For parents wondering what to do with kids who have a little extra time on their hands, Long Beach Parks, Recreation and Marine (PRM) is at your service.
The department will offer “Fall Fun Days” next week, extending the hours of parks and park community centers on November 23, 24, and 25—coincidentally, Long Beach Unified School District’s (LBUSD) Thanksgiving Break.
Each community center will be open for six hours a day, allowing kids to drop by for crafts, sports, games and holiday fun at their leisure. The park will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, and Friday, November 27.
Each park, listed below, has a specific opening and closing time. Call the numbers listed for park specific information, and click here to learn more.
