The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department has released its 2015-2016 annual report and summer program guide. The guide will be included in the Sunday, May 7 edition of the Lincoln Journal Star and a downloadable version is available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov. Copies are also available for free at the following locations:
The annual report includes project updates, highlights community events and provides information on department programs in the areas of youth development, active living, vibrant neighborhoods and environmental stewardship. The program guide provides information about Parks and Recreation programs available throughout the City.
"We are pleased and proud to share our annual report with the community," said Parks and Recreation Director Lynn Johnson. "We hope residents will take a few minutes to learn more about their Parks and Recreation Department. Our efforts to provide programs, facilities and services are focused on being 'FUNdamental' to the quality of life in Lincoln. We also hope people will use the program guide to continue or recommit to active, healthy living.'
Parks and Recreation will continue its wellness series of free summer programs as part of the department's "Play in the Parks" program that began in January. The free summer programs include canoeing at Holmes Lake, the Crunch and Lunch food program, water fitness classes, yoga in the park, and the Move More Lincoln Wellness Series.
