Aldersgate UMC has two fully enclosed playground areas. The “Sand Lot” is designed for our younger pre-school children and the “Play Zone” is equipped for our K5 and elementary age kids. They are located at the back of the church property – across the drive from the gymnasium. There is also a nice clearing area for group games.
Beside the playgrounds is our organic garden. We have a number of raised beds which are used by program participants to grow food and flowers. Our garden is currently overseen by a master gardener who advises us on what and when to plant. It makes a lovely place to enjoy a picnic.
If you are more into t-ball, softball or soccer, then check out our small ballfield beside the upper parking area. It makes a great place to run and play.
When the weather is too rough to play outside, then come in to our full regulation sized basketball court with adjustable backboards for our younger players. If basketball isn’t your sport, how about some volleyball.
All of these recreational resources are available to members on a reservation basis. They are great places for birthday parties and family get-togethers. If you are a church member 21 years of age or older, contact the church office (864-244-1820) for available times.
