"Virtual" Recreation Department

Welcome to the Waltham Virtual Recreation Center!  Here, you will find a collection of digital recreation resources.  The Waltham Recreation Department also would like to offer you and your family new and creative ways to stay busy, active, and engaged.  We hope that by bringing these resources to your fingertips, you will be able to prioritize your health and well-being. 

The City is working with its partners to offer you great online recreation resources.  The following list will be updated as more opportunities become available. Many of the City’s service partners offer these resources for free but please note some may charge a fee!  The City will update this page with new information periodically.  (Please note that the City does not endorse, collect payment on behalf of, or receive funds to advertise any of the third-party sites or services listed or referenced on this page.)
