The Parks Activity guide; full of fun! We hope you find this guide helpful in learning about the Department and some of the many things that happen because of the hard work and dedication of the Parks and Recreation staff. We encourage you to get involved in what your city has to offer and be active in your daily lives.

We have plenty of classes and opportunities to help you get in shape and have some fun. Our Senior Center and Pool offer great activities, while our parks, ball fields and trails afford you a diverse set of options. Take a step back in time and visit the Goodman Le-Grand Museum. Whether you live here or are just visiting, we invite you to take advantage of everything we have to offer.
