Mayor Tim DeGeeter, Parks & Recreation Director Mickey Vittardi and Ward 3 Councilman Mark Casselberry invite residents to attend:
Michael A. Ries Park & Playground Renovation Dedication
5000 Forestwood Drive
10 a.m., Saturday, June 1
The Recreation Department added new playground equipment to the Michael A. Ries Youth Complex late last fall and is officially dedicating it this spring.
Partially funded by the state, this improvement marks the third park to receive new equipment within the last few years. The other parks were James Day and Veterans Memorial parks, which now have exercise equipment and walking paths.
“We continue to strive for family-active participation and enjoyment at all our facilities,” Vittardi said.
