FROM THE DIRECTOR Summer in Fishers has arrived! Fishers Parks & Recreation is excited for the season and we hope you are, too. Our department hosts a diverse array of programs and events throughout the year, but we truly embrace summer as the season of parks. In fact, July is named National Parks and Recreation Month by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), and celebrates everything that parks and recreation departments have to offer. This summer, we invite you and your family to help us celebrate! Join us as we continue the tradition of the Tuesday Night Summer Concert Series presented by IU Health Saxony, and stop by the Fishers Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings for fresh Indianagrown produce and ready-to-eat foods.
