Cascades Golf Course contracted with Kentucky Fairways in 2017 to replace 37,000 square yards of fairway on the nine-hole Ridge Course with Meyer Zoysia grass. Zoysia is popular with golfers and groundskeepers alike for its density, durability, and tolerance of both drought and summertime heat. Ridge Course is scheduled to re-open for play in Spring 2018. Zoysia grass installation will continue with the Quarry Course in Fall 2018. Cascades Golf Course consists of three nine-hole courses, which can be combined to create three separate 18-hole configurations. The Quarry Course is the oldest of the three courses, dating back to 1928. The Quarry Course is a par-35, playing a maximum of 2,995 yards. The Pine Course was constructed in 1931 and is a par-36, playing a maximum of 3,135 yards. The Ridge Course is the newest course, opened in 2000. The Ridge Course is a par-36 which plays a maximum of 3,086 yards. Individual or group golf lessons may be scheduled with our on-site golf pro by calling 349-3764. Cascades offers amenities to meet the needs of any golfer. Leagues are offered for all ages. Beer and soft drinks are available for purchase from concessions. Indiana Alcohol & Tobacco Commission regulations prohibit individuals from bringing their own alcoholic beverages onto the golf course.

Bloomington Community Orchard

Community Gardening offers a variety of gardening opportunities for individuals, families, groups, and organizations. Services provided in the gardens include the initial preparation of the garden area, water sources, maintained paths, composting facilities, fencing, the advice of program staff, and the Garden Beet newsletter. Communal tools are available for use at scheduled times during the week. Gardeners with disabilities or other limitations will find gardening support, including accessible raised beds and access to adaptive tools. Both gardens have plenty of conveniently located parking and are accessible by Bloomington Transit bus routes. Plots are available for use starting in mid-April. Some plots at Willie Streeter, including raised beds, and all plots at Butler Park allow for year-round use.

Two locations offer rental plots:

Willie Streeter Community Gardens, located on South Highland near the YMCA, and Butler Park Community Gardens, just west of the intersection of West Ninth and North Fairview Streets. Plots are rented on a season-long basis. For more information regarding plot pricing and availability, please call 349-3704 or email communitygardens@bloomington.in.gov.

To ensure gardening opportunities are available to all members of the Bloomington community, financial assistance is available for those in need to help cover garden plot rental fees. For scholarship information, call 349-3700.

Plant a Row for the Hungry

To address local issues of community food security, Bloomington Parks and Recreation joins with Bloomingfoods Market and Deli, Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, Hilltop Garden and Nature Center, and Hoosier Hills Food Bank in encouraging gardeners to grow an extra row for a hungry family. In 2017, the campaign raised more than 27,500 pounds of fresh produce, which was distributed through area food resource agencies to community members in need. For more information, contact kitowskir@bloomington.in.gov or call 349-3704.

The Parks and Recreation Department last November issued a call for proposals from local artists for a two-dimensional design with a tree theme that could be produced as a limitededition Bicentennial Arbor Day poster. A total of seven designs were submitted. Representatives from the city’s Bicentennial Planning Committee and Bloomington Tree Commission, as well as Bloomington’s urban forester, unanimously chose a design submitted by local artist Emily Wilson. “Through this poster I hope to create an image that is both nostalgic and exciting. The poster depicts a variety of local trees (some increasingly endangered). It was my goal to generate awareness for those who hope to learn more about our natural surroundings, and recognition by those who already know and love them.” —Artist Emily Wilson A color, 18" x 24" limited reproduction of the Bicentennial Arbor Day poster is available for sale for $10 at the Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department office inside City Hall. Proceeds from the sale of the posters will support tree planting initiatives in Bloomington.

Healthy Heart Tip! Adults should get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise throughout each week!

Am I a City of Bloomington Resident? A resident is any person who resides within the City’s corporate limits. Do you pay Bloomington property taxes? Do you have a City of Bloomington trash pickup service? If you can answer “yes” to both of these questions, then you are a “City of Bloomington Resident.” If you are in an apartment and unsure if the property is “in-city” we can verify by checking your address. Even if your mailing address is “Bloomington,” it does not necessarily mean you are a City resident. Please call the City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation office at 349-3700 if you have residency questions. Fees and Charges City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation is a City of Bloomington department under the administration of the Mayor of Bloomington. City of Bloomington residents, through property taxes, make a significant contribution to the operation of the park system. Non-resident fees are charged so non-resident participants can fairly contribute to overall financing of the park system. Fees are listed separately for City of Bloomington residents and non-city residents. Residency verification may be requested. Waiver Of Liability The City of Bloomington is not responsible for any injuries sustained as a result of participation in any department sponsored activity, or while using departmental facilities. It is recommended that anyone enrolled in a program or using facilities make provisions for adequate coverage within their own insurance plan.

Late Registration Any registrations received after the deadline date may be subject to a late registration fee. Refund Policy No refunds are provided after the first day of a program. All refunds are subject to a $2 fee. If the $2 charge does not cover costs incurred by the department, the refund may be pro-rated in addition to the $2 charge. There are no refunds on season passes. Full refunds are given on all programs cancelled by City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation. Allow four weeks for refund requests to be processed. Registration Procedures Complete the registration form, online or hard copy, making sure all information is current and correct. Parent/guardian information is vital in the event of an emergency. Include all pertinent information, including the program code listed beside the program information. Read and sign the waiver statement located in the lower left area of the registration form. Full payment is required at the time of registration. See above for payment methods. Forms will be processed in the order received. Register early! All forms must be received by the registration deadline. City of Bloomington Parks and Recreation is not responsible for lost or late mail. Registration receipts will be mailed to you. This is not a guarantee of enrollment, but an acknowledgement of your registration. We will contact you by phone or mail if there is a problem with your registration.
