Civic Park Parking Lot Under Construction – Date Change

The Civic Park Community Center parking lot will be under construction from May 24 – June 5?

 

Here is the latest construction schedule.  I leave it up to you to decide how much to trust the end date.

The Civic Park parking lot is being enhanced with the installation of lighting.    Half of the parking lot closest to the community center will be inaccessible intermittently.  Parking spots will be available, but the the number of parking spots will be reduced.

Please plan accordingly as parking will be limited during this time (including the back parking lot closest to community center).  Please allow extra time to park in order to make it to your activity.

Participants are encouraged to carpool, plan for a ride that can drop you off close to the facility and/or utilize other parking facilities in downtown Walnut Creek.  Good luck finding a free parking spot near the Center.

Thank you!

Free Classes Online

Do you enjoy learning new things?

Do you long for the good old days when classes charged $3 an hour?  Now it’s hard to find classes for under $10 an hour.

Well, you can take online classes for free.  Have you ever heard of MOOCs?  They are Massive Open Online Classes given by universities.  You can take classes from universities like Stanford and Johns Hopkins.   What can you take?  Universities offer a range of online classes from art to zoo management.   I have taken HTML5 and CSS, and I just signed up for JavaScript.

To get started visit https://www.mooc-list.com, a catalog of MOOC classes.  You can search by subject, university, or other criteria.  You can also go directly to the universities.  Search the “university name” plus free online courses.

Of course there’s always a catch.  You definitely can’t get course credit unless you pay.  And some features like graded tests may be unavailable if they require instructors’ resources.  But if you want to just know more about a subject, why pay to study?
