Red Bank Recreation works hard to bring quality programs and events for the youth and adults of our community. Starting in the winter, we offer Indoor Soccer programs for children ages 5-17. Basketball programs are run by Jersey Fusion, they take place in the winter season and sometimes in the Spring, Summer or Fall. The Spring season brings youth Track and Field, and of course Baseball and Softball for all ages. Another community event we host in the Spring time is the Easter Egg-Hunt. 
 For our busiest time of the year, Summer Season, we offer camps for children and the Summer Series in the Park. Our Summer Series include Movies, Fitness and Jazz. We welcome everyone to come to Riverside Gardens Park to enjoy these free events. Special thanks to the Community YMCA, Jazz Arts Project and ShoreFlicks for coordinating the Summer Series with us.
