On the Parks Agenda


Missouri City is saddened to share that Tai Chi instructor and “Show Me City” partner Judy Pasadyn passed away on April 23, 2018. Judy began teaching Tai Chi twice per week at the Recreation & Tennis Center in January 2017. She had a class of dedicated individuals, and, due to the class’s success, Judy added a beginner’s Tai Chi class in October 2017. Judy’s generous spirit will be greatly missed.

As an FYI to the City’s Tai Chi students, there will be no classes until further notice. We will keep our residents updated.
