"Teen's Night Out" was started by the City of Inverness Parks and Recreation Department in June of 2021 to provide a positive alternative for gathering local teens in Citrus County. This event provides fun activities and food, as well as games and prizes. The City of Inverness has gone to great lengths to partner with community stakeholders such as the Anti-Drug Coalition of Citrus County, the Citrus County Education Foundation, Citrus County Sheriff's Office, as well as Eckerd Connects, Hanley Foundation, Florida Department of Health, Civic Communications(Tobacco Free Florida), Aspire Relationship Center, and others.
Parent Information: The regularly scheduled Teen's Night Out event is held the 2nd Thursday of the month from 5:30-7:00pm at the Inverness Depot which is located at 218A Apopka Avenue in Inverness, Florida next to Liberty Park. This is subject to change based on other conflicting events. Teen's Night Out is for students in 6th grade through 10th grade. Students may be dropped off, as it is a safe place for students with several Citrus County Sheriff's Office deputies patroling and interacting with students. PLEASE NOTE: Once a teen has left the Depot area(enclosed), they are not allowed to return. The City and other community partners cannot monitor teens who leave the designated area.
