The community center formerly known as Tolentine was taken over by Parks and Recreation in 2015, when the center at 1025 Mifflin St. was then renamed as the East Passyunk Community Center. Beyond the name change, the facility is now offering different programming to create a more accessible community space.
Among the new things being announced at the facility is the Special Olympics program that will be launching at this new location in South Philly this year.
This free program is meant to provide sports training to individuals with intellectual disabilities. The Olympics-style games offered through the program are meant to create connections and develop physical fitness.
A meeting is being held on Saturday, February 27 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:55 p.m. to discuss the program to all interested parties. If you’re looking to enroll your child in Special Olympics, or would like to participate as a volunteer, you are welcome to attend.
