Wrangell Parks & Recreation's February Newsletter!

PARKS and TRAILS!

For many Wrangellites, parks and trails are a link to the outdoors, providing opportunities for recreation, exercise and transportation.


One of the most direct benefits of community parks and trails is the close to home , accessible recreation opportunities they provide.

  • Preserve and create open spaces for recreation.
  • New opportunities for outdoor recreation and non-motorized transportation.
  • Unique facility to serve a diverse population of a community that may otherwise have limited opportunities to access natural areas due to financial or transportation constraints.
  • Affordable exercise and recreational opportunities within the community.

ADULT CLUB - COMING SOON!

ADULTING and RECREATING CAN CO-EXIST!

As children and teenagers, many of us had the experience of participating in recreational sports leagues including baseball, softball and basketball. Not only were they a good place to bond with our friends (and make new ones), they also got us moving and helped foster a competitive, and cooperative, spirit. Yet as adults, a lot of people don’t tend to consider sports as a feasible hobby; between work hours and family activities, there just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day. However, recreational sports have multiple benefits for adults, just as they do for kids and teens – in fact, adults are likely much more in need of the physical and psychological boosts that playing rec league sports can provide.


Stay tuned for the all new ADULT CLUB, a program which helps to connect adults to the activities that they've been dreaming about for their entire adult lives!!

STAFF HIGH-FIVES!

Kara is a rock solid lifeguard, with years of experience here at Wrangell Parks & Recreation. She ensures the safety of our swimmers, works hard to help train new employees, and she's one of the nicest people we know.


Kara was born in Portland, Oregon. Her favorite recreation activity is swimming. She grew up with a neighborhood pool and spent most of her summers all day in the pool. It provided her with memories and friendship. She loves working for Parks and Recreation because people are always happy to be here. Something interesting about Kara is that she won the Blue Championship Ribbon at the county fair for her blueberry muffins when she was 12!!


Thanks, Kara! We appreciate you!!
