City of Tampa Parks & Rec Presents Jingle Jam

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.

As part of the City of Tampa’s ongoing commitment to provide our residents with exciting and affordable programming while school’s out, we are offering free activities at seven of the City of Tampa’s Parks & Rec Centers during this year’s “Jingle Jam.”

These centers will have themed camp activities for all ages.

“As we enter the holiday season we are again opening our doors to our parks & rec facilities at a free or reduced cost,” said Mayor Bob Buckhorn. “Safety of your loved ones is our main priority and we know that offering these activities when school is on break reduces stress and decisions parents need to make when balancing work and family.”

The hours of operation are:

Wednesday, December 27th  – Friday, December 29th (week 1) and Tuesday, January 2nd – January 5th (week 2).
