Welcome to the City of Calistoga’s Parks and Recreation ‘At Home Recreation’ resource center! We want to continue engaging our community in meaningful, active, and mindful ways. Below are a few resources where you can find activities, projects, ideas, recommendations to enhance both physical and mental well-being during this time. I am working with many of our partners to provide resources for all of our community. Check back frequently for added resources!

If you have any suggestions or you find a great resource you’d like us to share, email us at rmelick@ci.calistoga.ca.us

 Yoga

There are a lot of great Yoga resources available, but here are a few that are pretty easy to access

Yoga for Everyone this 40 minute yoga class is appropriate for all levels

Cosmic Kids Yoga this is a great channel for a variety of kid’s yoga, easy to follow and fun!

Outdoor Activities

Included in the Shelter in Place order is the specific mention that residents are allowed “To engage in outdoor activity, provided the individuals comply with Social Distancing Requirements . . . .  such as, by way of example and without limitation, walking, hiking, or running”. Here are a couple of great places to do that!

Our local city parks are still open including Pioneer, Heather Oaks, and Logvy Park. Please note that the playground equipment is unfortunately closed. There are still a lot of activities that can be done while maintaining the social distancing requirements.

Our beautiful Napa County Regional Parks are also still open! They have a ton of great walking/hiking trails across many of their parks. We are lucky to have one right here in our own town: Oat Hill Mine.

Don’t forget the Napa Vine Trail from lower Washington to Dunaweal, a great place to walk, run, or bike.

We really encourage you to get outside, enjoy the sunshine, and breathe in that clean Calistoga air. Please make sure to follow social distancing requirements.

Let’s Get Creative!

Although there are so many ideas for arts and crafts that are easy to do at home, I picked a couple that seemed easy to do with materials on hand!

Chalk your walk: Head outside and draw inspiring messages and art on your driveway or sidewalk for your community members to see!

Picklebums: Folded paper bracelets https://picklebums.com/make-folded-paper-bracelets/

I think this could be done with different colored paper or even markers instead of paint

 

Let’s be Mindful!

The Napa County Library has eBooks available to check out! You just need a library card 

Some great podcasts for the kids www.wbur.org/circleround is folk stories from around the world
