From the Director's Desk

Lansing Parks and Recreation has accomplished great things in 2014. Here are just a few of the highlights:

Re-opening of Crego Park allows residents the opportunity to enjoy great fishing, canoeing and trails in a beautiful natural setting.  Renovations at Historic Turner Dodge are complete, including painting of the exterior, refinished floors and repairs to the interior from water damage. Masonry repairs are scheduled to begin soon. The south extension of the Lansing River Trail is complete providing over 16 miles of trails in the City of Lansing that are open 365 days a year.

2015 will give us all an opportunity to commit to exercising more, taking a new class or using one of our various sledding hills. Become a member of our new fitness center at Gier Community Center and see the benefits of working out. Take a moment to look through this edition of the Community Activities Guide and sign up for a class or program for you or your family. Be sure to Like us on Facebook for pictures of all of our great activities, event updates and more.

Our Parks and Recreation Master plan for 2015-2020 is currently being created. Please return the pre-paid survey post card located in center of this guide. We need and value your input on our parks, programs and services.

I look forward to seeing you this winter in one of our terrific city parks or at one of our city-sponsored parks and recreation programs. In the meantime, keep enjoying your parks, your programs and your community!

Here at Lansing Parks and Recreation we strive to provide all of the Lansing community with quality recreational opportunities. One way we do this is through our youth scholarship program. In the economic climate of today we are finding more families in need of this financial assistance. Your donation will help us ensure we are able to scholarship Lansing youth who request assistance.
