Words from the Director
It is hard to believe that summer is just around the corner. 2017 began with a flurry of activities and projects for the Parks, Recreation and Facilities Department, and we are excited to present the summer activity guide!
These past few months, the Parks Division has been hard at work as they completed the installation of new playground equipment at Siems and Mill Pond Parks. Plans are well underway to move forward with the replacement of the playground structure at Ollman Park and the addition of a tot playground at Gladstone Park. In addition to the new playground equipment, parks staff are in the final stages of renovating ball fields at Nazos and Camera Parks. Walking paths at Gladstone, Nazos, Heritage and Siems Parks will all see repairs and sealcoating to ensure that these well-traveled paths will have many more years of life. The basketball courts at Siems and Pheasant Ridge Parks will be repainted and seal-coated. We hope that you get the opportunity to visit some of our parks this summer and enjoy many of the upgrades!
The Recreation Division has been diligently working on creating new and exciting programs and events for the summer. I am proud to say that this summer’s activity guide includes 49 new activities along with all of our other popular programs!
On Saturday, June 17, the GH2O Aquatic Center will be celebrating its 20th anniversary with a Luau! We hope you can join us for an amazing night with Hula Dancers, Fire Dancers, Hawaiian music and food! If you are unable to make the event, I hope you get the chance to spend a day or two at the Aquatic Center enjoying the slides, diving boards, FlowRider or by just cooling off in the water.
Whether you are a sports enthusiast, swimmer, surfer, little gardener or a scientist in the making, between our parks and programs, we have something for everyone! Have a wonderful and safe summer!
