Virtual Recreation


Welcome to the City of El Monte’s Virtual Recreation Center! This platform was designed with you in mind. Staying at home doesn’t mean staying still. Our goal is to remain committed and to ensure that our resilient community members have resources to maintain healthy lives, grow meaningful relationships and continue to have extraordinary experiences. During these challenging times, our Virtual Recreation Center will bring programs and resources right to your computer. Our hope is to make it easier for you and your family to prioritize your health and well-being.

We have dozens of free resources to help keep your body moving, mind challenged and creativity flowing! Maybe you want to start your morning off with an exercise, excel in a new hobby, learn how to play soccer, or see a part of the world that you have always wanted to visit from the comfort of your home. Drop by and visit our page often for new updates and ideas to keep you and your loved ones healthy, entertained and informed. Have a great idea or resource to share?
