GREELEY ACTIVE ADULT CENTER (AAC)

New Name, Same Great Programs!

30

The Greeley Senior Activity Center will soon have a new sign above the building. The center has undergone a name change to the Greeley Active Adult Center, which will include a new marquee in August. This social hub for individuals 50-years and better, is a great place to play.

The decision to change the facility name was based on a several factors: • “Many baby boomers shy away from the designation of ‘senior center.’ They consider themselves to be active adults and prefer to use the pool, tracks, gyms and exercise rooms. However, there still is a need for passive recreation so the need remains to offer classes, instructions and social activities,” wrote Carl Guarnieri in the January Parks and Recreation Magazine article titled “Senior Center vs. Community Center.” • In the February issue of Greality Magazine, there was an article titled “Silver Tsunami,” which addresses the large increase in 50+ residents that will be residing in Greeley in the next 20 years. • The Greeley Tribune changed all of the Senior Life Page 11 to “Beyond 60 Activity Living.” They made this change on their own to help draw in a new population of readers.

The Greeley Active Adult Center already offers sports, programs, educational classes, day trips and international excursions. Now we’re gearing up to offer even more programming to meet your needs! We want to make sure that you can enjoy the same active, healthy lifestyle that you are accustomed to later in life. That’s why we offer pickleball, table tennis, badminton, softball and volleyball leagues, hiking trips, fishing, billiards, chess, card games and a variety of small group activities as well as SilverSneakers®, Tai Chi and other exercise classes to keep your mind and body stimulated. Here’s what one of our current members said… “Prior to becoming a member at the Senior Center, my thoughts were - I’m not old enough to join the Senior Center. That is for old people. Most of my friends had and continue to have the same thoughts. I love the idea that you are changing the name of the Center to reflect that ‘Senior’ can reflect a stigma and perhaps stop people from joining the Center and pursuing new interests.” Thumb through pages 30-44 to see what’s in store this fall or come visit during an Open House on Tues, Aug 21 from 4-7pm.

FEATURED PARK system for users to walk the entire site, enjoying all the new features and sounds this park has to offer.

Woodbriar Park, located at 19th Street and 30th Avenue, has seen a dramatic change in its appearance over the last year.

Originally the park was developed in the early 1970’s as part of the Rolling Hills Subdivision. The park had a small shelter with two restrooms added in 1989 and a playground with typical schoolyard-type features. Through a joint effort between the City of Greeley’s Parks and Stormwater Divisions, a massive site renovation began in 2017. To plan for the renovation, a consultant was hired to evaluate the park and its role in providing neighborhood Stormwater management and recreational opportunities. A new design based on feedback from several community meetings was finalized and construction began.

Whether you are looking for a nice park to walk around or the kids need a new and exciting playground to visit, Woodbriar now offers an experience unlike any other park in the system. Check it out today!

PARKS AND OPEN SPACES

The best part of this construction that is not typical of a “new” park, is that many of the large mature trees on site were able to be saved and the park will have the feel of a new facility, the look of a completely new park and the shade of thriving older trees.

Woodbriar Park is, in all sense of the word, a “new” park. The design encompasses the needs for better neighborhood Stormwater management, but also reactivates the site for recreational opportunities. A new open flow of water running through the site surrounded by native grasses on the east end offers kids and adults the opportunity to engage with nature. A new playground experience—unlike any other in Greeley—sparks kids’ creative play juices. Many of the play features use wood taken from the site at the beginning of construction. There is also a large grass field for pickup soccer games or for simply running in the grass. This area is overlooked by a tiered stone wall that acts as a seating area for people to sit and watch games or practices. The site also has an updated shelter and restrooms to meet current standards. Finally, there is a long and winding path

GREELEY’S NATURAL AREAS

PARKS AND OPEN SPACES

Web of Life When you visit any of Greeley’s amazing natural areas, do you act as though you are visitor in somebody else’s home? Just as in our own homes where we want to be secure and raise our families, wildlife seek places where they can safely live and raise their young. The diversity of native vegetation, food and water sources and topography of these sites provide unique niches for many creatures. Various species of birds depend on Greeley’s natural areas. From large raptors including bald eagles and great-horned owls to the tiniest broad-tailed hummingbirds and species in between, each finds suitable nesting areas and food and water sources. Raptors seek out small mammals, birds, reptiles or fish. Other bird species feed on insects, nectar and seeds. Flickers and woodpeckers find insects in the trunks of trees. Some birds nest high in the branches of the native cottonwood trees. Others use cavities in the trees or build nests that hang from the branches. Killdeer and turkeys build nests on the ground. Waterfowl use open water and meadows for feeding and nesting areas. Mammals range in size from tiny voles and field mice to white-tailed deer. Frequently seen species include cottontail rabbits, fox squirrels and black-tailed prairie dogs. Although seen less often, bats, red fox, coyotes, badgers and skunks utilize these areas for feeding and denning. Some of these animals feed on other mammals while others eat plants, seeds and insects. Did you know that bats consume their own body weight in insects each night?

66

Other natural area residents are reptiles and amphibians - turtles, frogs, toads and salamanders there are even snakes (most are not poisonous), which help control the population of mice and voles. These species eat insects, small mammals, mollusks and plants. They all become food for other species. Lastly, there are the insects. The variety is nearly immeasurable. From tiny gnats and mosquitoes to spiders, beetles, butterflies, moths and bees, insects are critical to the ecosystem. Most are a food source to other creatures. Some provide valuable pollinating services. Many species build their nests in the ground, while others build nests in trees. Each of these natural area residents are an important part of the ecosystem along with the plants that grow there, critical to maintaining a balanced ecosystem. When one species is removed from the system, others may become overpopulated or die off due to lack of predators or lack of food. Chief Seattle said, “Humankind has not woven the web of life; we are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” When you visit a Greeley natural area, remember you are a visitor to someone else’s home. Naturalist John Muir said, “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time.” And last but not least, “Tread lightly and leave no trace that you were there.”

SISTER CITY PROGRAM

Moriya, Japan Student Exchange Program

The City of Greeley and Moriya, Japan, have been celebrating and fostering a Sister City relationship for more than 20 years. During the summer of every odd year, such as in 2019, the City of Greeley organizes approximately ten high school students to visit Moriya as part of a student exchange program. During even years, such as in 2018, Greeley families host Moriya students. The Sister City Student Exchange Program is a wonderful opportunity for students from both cities to explore each other’s countries and learn more about their cultures, traditions and ways of life.

2019 Student Trip to Japan

Applications to participate in Greeley’s Sister City Program become available in December. During that month, students in grades 9 through 12 (minimum age 14) are encouraged to visit Greeleygov.com/Moriya to learn more and download an application. Eligible students excel in academics, are Greeley residents, are interested in fun and adventure and are excited about the possibility of developing life-long friendships with people from across the Pacific Ocean. As an exchange student, participants serve as ambassadors between the two cities and the City of Greeley pays a portion of the travel costs for each student. Applications will not be accepted until January 2019. For more information about the program, visit http://greeleygov.com/Moriya or call the Culture Division Manager, Jason Evenson at 970-350-9482, or Programming Coordinator, Mari Hein Beegle at 970-350-9449.

Greeley’s Recreation Division Celebrates with a New Look

T

he City of Greeley’s Culture, Parks and Recreation Department is proud to announce a new face to the Recreation Division! When it came time to refresh the Recreation brand, it was important that all aspects of the project remained true to Greeley’s natural beauty, energy and community. This new look catches your attention with our bright, bold colors! The custom blue was designed with the Colorado skies in mind and the vibrant yellow was a reference to the plains’ amber waves of grain. They meet in the middle to create a classic green “play button,” inspiring all to get up and move! The new Recreation symbol is placed front and center of the new look, an easily-recognized design that represents the entire feeling of the brand. The department hired Tommy Dyer, a Northern Colorado graphic designer, for the big project. Dyer, a freelance designer, said that the biggest challenge of this design was making sure the logo reflected the community, “By creating something that encompasses everything Recreation has to offer—so much more than sports programming or a gym…appealing to all ages.” We hope the community is excited about bringing Greeley Recreation into the future.
