The gymnastics program is horrible not safe with the our children. No kinds of socializing with the kids or motivation. Always Checking on their phones taking their eyes away from the children. I dont recommended at all the instructor was not helpful either Not professional at all.

I have to give 10 stars. Gardena Parks Rec and the city of Gardena did a fantastic job on the organization of the 19th annual Jazz Festival. Me personally would like to see a little more variety in food.

I noticed lately that our city parks are not so taken care of. I also noticed they only have 1 guy emptying the heavy trash cans around the park. I recently followed him to another park and the city cant even give the poor guy a helper or a truck that will help him out WOW they sure know how to take care of their employees these dedicated workers What a joke it USED to be the place to work for. Maybe they need to hire more compassionate people on top

Spring Craft Fair Event 4.6.19. Lots of talented artists creating everything from jewelry to knitted items. The folks here are really nice and friendly. The staff as well is the best when setting this event up practically every year. It brings the community out especially on a nice day like today. So much nice and cool things to see. I dont think I have enough cash today to buy stuff. Lol. Hope they have Square

I went in today to sign up my daughter for ballet and the receptionist was busy with another person so I waited in line. I needed to borrow a pen but it looked like they were about done so I decided to wait for my turn to ask. They kept chit chatting for like another 5-10 minutes without even acknowledging I was there. I politely tried to wave to the receptionist so I could fill out my form while I waited for them to be done. Again neither acknowledged me. I waited another 5 minutes when I polite try to ask for a pen I was ignored. Another women from the back of the office came to ask what I needed. Finally the women stopped chit chatting and when it was my turn the receptionist didnt even acknowledge me didnt say sorry for the wait or even asked me what I needed. She kept fixing papers on her desk started counting her money drawer. Then she finally looked at me and asked what did I want. I paid her and left. It only took 2 minutes for her to help me while I had to wait over 20 minutes to be acknowledged. I understand if they wanted to chitchat and talk but they did not have to be rude and complete disregard me.
