From tennis to gymnastics to art to music lessons to volunteering, the Park District offers a host of activities for high schoolers.
Climbing Wall at Courts Plus
Courts Plus has a 20-foot-high indoor climbing wall, Mt. Endeavor, that offers a great experience for both the beginning and advanced climbers.
Why climb? Climbing is an excellent way to learn life skills and improve self-esteem. It offers a total body cardiovascular workout while also toning and strengthening your body, improving balance, flexibility and technique. Our state-of-the-art climbing center offers a variety of walls for beginners and advanced climbers.
The Hub at Berens Park
The Hub features four batting cages with varying speeds and settings for baseball and softball, and an 18-hole miniature golf course. The Hub also features the Lee A. Daniels Pavilion, a 3,500 sq. ft. facility housing restrooms, concessions/storage and a party room available for rentals.
Skate Park at York Commons
Cruise down to the Skate Park at York Commons. The skate park gives teens the opportunity to safely skateboard, rollerblade, and BMX with friends. At the park you will find ramps for beginners all the way up to advanced users. Once inside "the Cage" you'll be challenged by a half-pipe, snake run, pyramid, and bank ramps. Come show everyone what you've got! The Skate Park is open daily, weather permitting.

The course features large, smoothly contoured Penncross bentgrass greens, a 3-acre pond coming into play on four of the nine holes, and excellent turf for golf.
