Director's Message

The holidays come and go so quickly, but they may leave unwanted extra pounds that linger. If so, check out the various programs and facilities that will help you jump start your road to fitness. Interval training, nutrition workshops and the new craze of Cize Live are all available at low costs at Silver Creek Community Center.

Check out the new gym floor at the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center, and the many after school and fitness activities happening there throughout the week.

The newly renovated playgrounds at Wayside Park and Garden Park are fully accessible to all children and each have unique play features, so bring the family for an afternoon adventure in the park.

Lastly, McMurtrey Aquatic Center has a fresh look with new waterslides, bright paint, and clean tiles. Watch for a grand re-opening of the pools with the annual Polar Bear Plunge!!!
