[ARCHIVED] Resolutions Within Reach

Resolution Solutions

If you’re still looking for that perfect New Year’s resolution, check out the array of opportunities right here in Poway. Whether your goal is to make a move in a new direction or simply get moving, you don’t have to travel far to achieve something new in 2019.


It’s no secret that Poway has more than 50 miles of hiking trails throughout the city. There’s something for everyone to explore, no matter how far you want to go or how steep a hill you want to climb. But hiking isn’t the only fitness option in Poway. 

The recently renovated pool at the Poway Community Swim Center is maintained at 80 to 84 degrees for comfortable swimming year-round. Pool hours are posted at and even with its winter schedule there are close to 40 hours of lap swim time each week.


If you’re looking to spend time with your family, look no farther than an outing to one of Poway’s 22 parks and recreation centers. The Poway Community Services Guide lists upcoming special events as does the city’s website

The first family campout at Lake Poway is coming up quickly Feb. 1 and 2. Friday evening includes a free fishing seminar and pizza and Saturday is one of the most anticipated lake events of the year, the Youth Fishing Derby. 

You can’t miss with a visit to Old Poway Park on the weekend while the Poway Midland Railroad is in operation. California history comes alive throughout the park and the farmer’s market on Saturday is one of the best around.


It takes 100s of volunteers each year to put on all of Poway’s great events and programs. There are opportunities for volunteers to help our community during an emergency, take care of our trails, share the history of our community with others and much more. There is even a teen volunteer program that provides community service experience for Poway’s youths. 


Bring your skills and passion to one of the most celebrated cities in San Diego County. Apply now to be part of a unique organization that balances solid fiscal management with creating an unmatched quality of life for our residents and businesses.
