Introducing the new face of HARD
Submitted By Samira M. Hamid
The Hayward Area Recreation and Park District (H.A.R.D.) is sporting more than its usual flare for fun and community enrichment. H.A.R.D. celebrates its 70th Anniversary this year and its new look is fueled by the launch of their re-designed website. The new website is bold, innovative, and most important to constituents, is easy to navigate.
ÒOur Board of Directors and the entire H.A.R.D. organization is excited about the new website and we see this technology as another way to engage directly with our community,Ó said John Gouveia, General Manager of H.A.R.D.
The website has a multitude of improved functionalities that allow users to register for classes, see upcoming events and view the many H.A.R.D. facilities. ÒThe website was re-designed for ease of use and navigation,Ó Gouveia shared. ÒWe want the public to have easy access to sign their family up for classes, reserve a facility, book tee times, find parks and hiking trails, and learn how to utilize our many services.Ó
Another enhancement to the website is the ability to connect with other citizens through the Community Voice feature. It allows residents to submit ideas for improvement or changes in the District. The new website also hosts a dynamic 70th Anniversary video that highlights the many parks, programs and people who represent H.A.R.D.
Many of the H.A.R.D. programs are staffed by volunteers and the website allows for both employment and volunteer opportunities. The website also provides the ability to donate through their foundation to the many services and programs H.A.R.D. encompasses.
The website features notable upcoming events including: the Douglas Morrisson Theatre performance of ÒAn Ideal Husband,Ó the Abstract Meets Reality art exhibition at the Hayward Shoreline Interpretive Center and the Star Leadership Training for teens beginning in the spring.
