TASK 14Sentinel City offers a wide array of resources for the community. Their Department of Parks and Recreation offers many family friendly opportunities such as swimming lessons, summer programs for children, sport leagues and after school programs, adult fitness programs, gardening courses, and nutrition classes. While this department is very family friendly, there are its drawbacks.
