From the Director's Desk
Lansing Parks and Recreation prides itself on its diversity. We have sports, arts, dance, fitness, swimming, and enrichment classes. In addition we have special events, over 70 playgrounds, 16 miles of River Trail and 111 parks.
Lansing Parks and Recreation begins classes for youth at age 6 months with our babies swimming class and we have seniors over 90 years old participating in our 70+ softball league. We offer programs for individuals with disabilities and are adding 3 accessible canoe/kayak launches this year at Moores Park, River Front Rotary Park and Krueger’s Landing. Our parks and River Trail system is free and open 365 days a year. We offer a large number of programs at little or no cost to the participant and offer scholarships to hundreds of Lansing youth each year. We have community centers in each area of the city, parks and playgrounds within a 10 minute walk of each resident, and have a diverse staff to serve our diverse community.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lansing residents for the support of the Lansing Parks Millage which provides approximately $2 million dollars for improvements in the park system. In addition residents of Ingham County approved a parks and trails Millage which we have been able to utilize for improvements to the River Trail system. Both of these millages allow for Capital Improvements in our great park system. Thank you again for your support!
