Story Walk is a partnership of Healthy Portland, a program of the City of Portland's Health and Human Services Department, Portland Recreation, the Portland Public Library, and Portland Housing Authority. The first Story Walk was displayed in Montpelier, Vermont and was created by Anne Ferguson.

About Fore River and Jewell Falls This 85-acre preserve is the home of Jewell Falls, Portland's only natural waterfall, as well as the site of the former Cumberland an Oxford Canal. The lowland area, where salt and freshwater marsh meet, provides great bird-watching opportunities. Red oak and white pine contribute to a habitat for many songbirds and small mammals in the upland area. The land around the falls was donated to Portland Trails by the family of Tom Jewell, one of Portland Trails' founders. Open from dawn to dusk, year-round. From the Congress Street trailhead, the trail passes over the bridge and runs along the former canal towpath at a flat grade for over a half-mile before turning north to cross two boardwalk along the wetland areas. As the trail heads uphill into hilly terrain, there is a loop trail which, at its highest point, leads to Jewell Falls. Dogs, accompanied by responsible owners, are allowed in some areas, watch for sighs. A short walk down Congress Street sidewalks leads to the Fore River Trail and Stroudwater Trail. To connect to the Capisic Brook Trail, follow a path from Frost Street up to Riverview Street.

The center provides its programs in community-based pools and recreation facilities with the goal of transitioning participants into their own community recreation and swimming programs. The center offers professional training, student internships, volunteer opportunities, service contracts, consultation, and special purpose programs. The center's current focus is its therapeutic and adapted aquatics programs for children and adults. The adapted aquatics program follows the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program. All center employees are trained Red Cross instructors and lifeguards, and certified recreation therapists. Classes are available for young children, school age youngsters, teens, and adults. All therapeutic aquatic programs are individualized, based on participant needs. Other available recreation programs include a weekly adult social recreation, an after-school art program for middle and high school youth (Teen Arts [TARTS]) and a new social skills program for middle and high school youth, and youth adults (Social Opportunities and Recreation [SOAR]. The SOAR and TARTS programs are part of the center's Rec-ploration program, an after school program for middle and high school students. For more information or to visit a program, please call the center at 772-0504, or email at [email protected] (for Karen McPhee) or [email protected] (for Rose Cronin).

Tobacco Free Policy

Promoting Health and Wellness: Creating Tobacco-Free Athletic Facilities and Playgrounds In an effort to promote health and wellness, the City of Portland, Maine Parks and Recreational athletic facilities, playgrounds and assembly areas are now designated as tobacco-free zones. A resolution to promote the health and wellness of City of Portland residents and visitors by establishing athletic facilities, playgrounds and assembly areas as tobacco-free zones received the unanimous endorsement of the City Council at their March 15, 2004 meeting. The initiative was a collaborative effort between the Portland Parks & Recreation and Health & Human Services Departments. Several Maine communities have adopted similar policies, including Bath, Brunswick, Raymond Beach, Ellsworth, Skowhegan, Lewiston and Auburn. The environment in which we live plays a critical role in supporting healthy behaviors. If children see tobacco used by adults at recreation facilities they are more likely to perceive tobacco as a normal part of adult life. Tobacco use is inconsistent with goals of recreation ­ to promote healthy, active, family recreation. In addition, secondhand smoke contains many toxins, is a known cancer-causing agent, and even short-term exposure has been known to contribute to heart disease. Spectators and others gathered in close proximity are routinely exposed to second hand smoke when smoking is allowed. Goals: -Promote non-smoking as the norm at recreation facilities and playgrounds -Eliminate exposure to second hand smoke in seating areas -Reduce cigarette litter

2012 Before and After School

2012-2013 BEFORE & AFTER SCHOOL REC PROGRAM FOR K-5th GRADE This program provides an opportunity for children in grades kindergarten through five to participate in structured and well-supervised activities specifically designed for the elementary school-aged child. The philosophy of the Portland Recreation Before and After School Program is to encourage each child to develop independence, self-confidence and self-sufficiency within a safe environment. Our staff uses positive reinforcement and encouragement to assist children in achieving these goals. Our programs are designed to provide a learning experience and promote positive peer interaction. Our staff members are qualified and have a respectful and caring attitude toward youth. Our standards call for one staff person for every 12-15 children. Healthy snacks are provided each day courtesy of Hannaford Supermarkets. Daily activities include gym games, arts and crafts, reading and outdoor activities. We partner with Maine Audubon to provide outdoor nature education seasonally with each site. We also partner with Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Southern Maine. They are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of young people, focusing on prevention, primarily through professionally supported one to one relationships with volunteers, enriching their lives. Local high school students may be matched with children in the after school recreation program. Again, this year, we partnered with the Portland Sea Dogs and the Portland Public Library to encourage children to read during their after school hours. "Read Your Way to Opening Day" challenged the children to read 50 books or 50 chapters from January through March. If the child completed the reading challenge they received two free tickets to opening day of the Sea Dogs. We will also continue our Kindness and Respect award program. Recreation children are nominated by peers and counselors who have shown kindness and respect to other children or adults. The recipients and their families will be invited to celebrate their achievement at a pizza party (sponsored by Otto's Pizza).

Portland residents have first priority in all classes and activities up to three weeks before the start of the program. Proof of residency is required when registering for programs.

Fee waivers are granted on a first come, first served basis, per program. When a program has filled, we maintain waiting lists in the event that a space opens. There is no fee to be added to our waiting list. If a space does become available, fees would be collected at that time. Fee waivers only apply to youth programs run by the Recreation Department. A full refund will be given for withdrawal from a program two weeks prior to the start date. A 90% refund will be given for withdrawal from a program one week prior to the start date.

Children with special needs as a result of physical or mental disability will be reasonably accommodated, as long as such accommodation does not fundamentally alter the nature of the service, program or activity or result in an undue burden.
