Director's Message

The wonderful winter rains left the parks green again, so this summer will be a great time to try a new playground. Newly renovated ones at Garden and Wayside Parks include accessible musical instruments and challenging climbing apparatus. Gather your friends for pickleball or disc golf or a bike ride. Take your dog to one of the off leash areas or sign up for a dog obedience class.

Looking for a fun family activity for the whole family that is outdoors and free? Check out the Spectrum Movies in the Park series at various parks and the Beale Band Concert.

Explore the summer brochure for activities ranging from basketball camp to adult hockey, indoor soccer and so much more. Summer is right around the corner, so be sure to sign up for those swim lessons and summer passes. The brand new waterslides at McMurtrey Aquatic Center will be a big splash not to be missed. Experience summer in the city as never before and enjoy!
