Virtual Recreation Center


Your online hub for recreation and mindfulness within the City of Mountain View



We are lucky to live in an area surrounded by trees, trails, mountains, and incredible outdoor opportunities. If you are considering visiting a park and are able to travel further afield, now may be a good time to explore some or our region’s larger or more remote natural areas, which may be less crowded.

Can’t get out? Explore virtual options!

There’s nothing like getting outside, feeling the sunshine, breathing in fresh air and connecting with nature. But during these difficult times, we recognize that the opportunity to get outside is going to be limited for many. Several organizations have put together great free resources for online exercise classes, virtual at-home workouts, and other ways to explore your world and connect with others remotely. Mountain View Recreation is also working to explore virtual fitness and recreation programming and we will have more information about these opportunities soon. In the meantime, check out these resources:


If you find yourself with a little more time on your hands or need some stimulus for your little ones, perhaps its time to pick up a hobby or learn a new skill.
