See what's out there by signing up for our many trips and tours. We offer a wealth of activities to encourage life enrichment through engagement in social and physical activity, while taking a trip off the beaten path. 

The 2019 Montgomery County 10U and 12U All Stars won the District Championship at Harkrader Sports Complex.

Youth Athletics

Parks and Recreation offers youth athletics in the Auburn, Eastern Montgomery, and Prices Fork areas of the county. We approach recreational sports with the belief that emphasis should be placed on educational and social benefits, rather than competition. Ultimately, it is our goal to ensure that every participant receives an enjoyable and lasting recreation experience in a safe and positive environment.

Frog Hoppers Summer Camp participants gather in the Activity Center to show off their artwork.

Community and Educational Programs

Partake in a variety of educational programs for youth and adults. These programs include Frog Hoppers Summer Camp, Bob Ross painting classes, hunter education, Medicare seminars, boating safety classes and more!

Citizens enjoy a sunny day at the Frog Pond Swimming Pool located at Mid-County Park.

Frog Pond Pool

The Frog Pond is a great place to hang out and relax during the summer. Our aquatic programs and lessons are Red Cross Certified and designed to help the participant grow as a swimmer. The pool has a zero-depth entry for those wanting to ease into the water, and a maximum depth of eight feet for those who want to make a splash and jump right in!

A canoe rests along the New River shoreline at the Whitethorne Boat Launch on a summer day.
