    We have a beautiful new playground at the Upper Reservoir Park on Shadyside Drive. The playground was constructed in memory of John Morrow and Donna Newberry. The Village and NCAARD received a grant from the Rogge Foundation in Zanesville and NCAARD provided the grant match from funds that were bequeathed from Donna Newberry's estate for recreational opportunities in the Village. The New Concord Area Board of Trade donated funds toward the cost of the dedication sign and the Village provided the remainder of the funds and the labor for the playground.

    Please come visit the new playground and enjoy the tranquility of the Upper Reservoir Park during this beautiful, colorful season. The next phase of the project will be new swings!!!

    As the season progresses, and some of our after school programs finish for the semester, our schedule becomes a little tricky so please check your email and the New Concord Area Arts and Recreation District Facebook for updates on cancellations and changes of venue.

    We still have regular Yoga, POUND, Guitar, and Clogging classes that will continue through the year - although we do not hold classes on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day.

    We'll be bringing you another great selection of programs for the Winter and Spring seasons.

    See you soon!

    ********* Keep up to date on new programs and weather cancellations on our Facebook page. You can find us under "New Concord Area Arts and Recreation." Be sure to "Like" NCAARD and "Share" us with your friends!

    We are


    for you!

    As we head into the holiday season, we at NCAARD are thankful for all the volunteers who help instruct our programs, and for all of you who participate! We wouldn't have NCAARD without you!

    This is a great time of year to take a step back and take a look at your life from a distance, and assess where you are and where you'd like to be. We get so busy during the holidays that we often forget to relax and give back to our mind and bodies.

    At NCAARD we strive to provide ways to help you do that. Drop in for a yoga class if you need to stretch and relax, or come POUND with us if you want a great work out (and need to work out your holiday frustrations!) Clogging is also a great workout and so much fun!! Learning to play the guitar and make beautiful music gives you such a sense of creativity and accomplishment! So often we put ourselves and our health at the bottom of the "to do" list - work with us to say thanks to yourself! and feel grateful for who you are - inside and out.

    Thank You!!
