Of course with Dr. Phillips being located on the Chain of Lakes, it is great for water sports such as boating, skiing and fishing. The community offers many youth athletic programs year round.
A popular gathering place for families to socialize and participate in recreational activities together is Dr. P. Phillips YMCA Family Center. It was opened in 1985 and has expanded many times over the years. It was a joint effort of Dr. Phillips Charities, the YMCA, local developers and businesses, community groups, families and individuals. Together they have created one of the finest YMCA facilities in the country.
The impact of the Dr. P. Phillips YMCA on the community is evident by the large number of residents who participate in YMCA activities and sports. There are also hundreds of children enrolled in swimming lessons, after-school care, summer camps, and many other YMCA activities.
And although the kids may not appreciate it yet, one day they will thank you for sending them to award winning schools in Doctor Phillips!
