For Families

Looking for an easy, fun way to be active with your kids? Check out Family Gym, a FREE play program for families with children ages 3-8 to get up, out and moving together.

No pre-registration is necessary, and families can stop by any Saturday that we are in session. Adult participation is required and adults must remain in the gym with their children at all times.

View our Family Gym video to learn more about the program!

Some Family Gym News:

  • Name Change! For those of you who know us as Open Gym, we changed the name of the program to Family Gym to better reflect what the program is about. The program is not changing at all, just the name!
  • Family Gym is now at two sites instead of one. We are still at our usual location, the BCYF Recreation Center at Madison Park. In addition, in the fall of 2013 we started a new location at the BCYF Blackstone Community Center. Both sites operate on the same schedule and you’re welcome to join us at either location.

Where to find us:

BCYF Recreation Center at Madison Park in Roxbury


BCYF Blackstone Community Center in the South End

Saturdays, 10:00am-11:30am

Note: We will not be offering a Summer 2014 session, but Family Gym will be returning in September 2014. We look forward to seeing you then!
