Youth / Children's Classes

Williamson County Parks & Recreation understands the importance of getting children MOVING!  We want them to learn the benefits of having an active and healthy lifestyle, teaching them to take care of themselves as well as the world in which they live.  We also want them to have enrichment programs that help to cultivate a desire for life-long learning.  WCPR offers a multitude of programs such as martial arts, stem camps, and after school programs. Activities vary throughout the year to engage your child all year long. While you come to enjoy your workout – we will keep your child active and engaged too! We also offer a variety of other programs which may be found in other areas of the website.  Please see Health & Wellness, Music Classes and Art Classes for more programs.
