Kids 8 to 15 have a new place in Mesa to hang out after school or on Saturdays. The Red Mountain Multigenerational Center has opened a youth activity room for pre-teens and teens to enjoy billiards, foosball, music, movies and interactive games. Also, the center has age-appropriate games on Wii and Xbox systems.
The city's parks and recreation department opened the center to provide a safe place for children to stay busy while parents are working out at the gym or taking a recreation class. A city employee supervises the center. The room is open 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays. For more information, visit mesaaz.gov/parksrec/RMMC.
