As part of its mission to provide and promote a broad range of safe, enjoyable recreational and educational opportunities for our citizens, the Parks and Recreation, Education and Culture (R.E.C.) Department offers a wide variety of programs for all ages.
In addition to passive parks, open spaces, and tot lots, the department manages three swimming pools, five community centers, the Arthur I. Snyder Tennis Complex, summer camps and after-school programs, and the Marjorie and William McDonald Center, a multi-purpose facility.
The department recognizes the importance of cultural enrichment in the lives of all citizens by providing festivals, musicals, concerts, and special performances in our 931-seat, state-of-the-art, North Miami Beach Performing Arts Theater.
Other presentations and special events are offered at the Senator Gwen Margolis Amphitheater, an open-air facility behind our library, with grassy sloping knolls that seat 1,000.
