MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR We are pleased to bring you the Richland Parks and Recreation 2017 Spring-Summer Guide. The following pages will provide you with information regarding a variety of activities brought to you by the City of Richland and our partners. We have prepared a diverse portfolio of offerings intended to appeal to all ages and interests. We are especially excited about two specific projects: First, we have completed a beach and shoreline stabilization project in Howard Amon Park that will protect cultural resources and provide a much needed sandy place to enjoy the Rivershore. It’s exactly what the community has been asking for and will prove to be popular! The City now has 120’ of new sand to feel between our toes. A follow-on, second project will widen the Riverfront Pathway in part of Howard Amon Park this year. Second, we’ve completed a full renovation of our sand volleyball courts at Leslie Groves Park. It’s a top tier facility including special sand that will not compact. The surface will stay soft for effective and safe sand volleyball play. I hope you get an opportunity to enjoy the new amenities. As always I appreciate the opportunity and the privilege to manage your park system and please do not hesitate to track me down in the Community Center or out in the field.

Joe Schiessl Director of Parks & Public Facilities


COMMISSIONER CORNER Spring is here and outdoor activities abound! There are so many great outdoor activities in Richland to enjoy. For walkers, joggers and bike riders, Richland offers several beautiful trails. One choice is Richland’s “Riverfront Trail” along the Columbia River; another is the trail along Keene Road in South Richland. For the golfers it’s time to dust off those clubs and head out to Columbia Point Golf Course. Having been involved in a lot of youth sports myself, not only as a player, but as a coach, I am excited to say baseball season is here! So feel free to stop by one of the many baseball parks, grab a hotdog and a soda, and watch a Little League game! It’s cheap entertainment and it’s always exciting! Another great option for hikers is the famous “Badger Mountain Trail” on Badger Mountain! If you have not hiked this mountain yet, it’s a great way to challenge yourself and you’ll also enjoy a great view of the Tri-Cities. Did I mention Richland’s community center? This is a great place to stop by and ask about all the sporting programs, activities and entertainment Richland has to offer. The community center has conference rooms, a fitness room, and offers many activities for our local seniors and for all age groups. Want to watch a concert? Say no more! A new addition is the John Dam Plaza Amphitheater which is a favorite gathering place to sit and enjoy great entertainment with many local food trucks abound! If you just want to kick back, enjoy the spring sun on your face, breathe some fresh air, then go to one of Richland’s many parks, find a bench and just relax! My family loves the outdoors and all that it brings. My wife and I love to walk, jog, bike, hike and boat. One of our favorite walks is along the city’s riverfront trail where we can also meet friends afterwards for a bite at one of the many local restaurants nearby. As a longtime resident and an appointed Commissioner for the Richland Parks and Recreation Commission I have the privilege to serve our community. The commission is dedicated to provide input in keeping our city parks and open spaces moving forward while improving the quality of life and safety for everyone who uses Richland’s parks and recreation programs. I hope you have a great Spring and Summer and enjoy what Richland Parks and Recreation has to offer. Oh, and if you happen to see my wife and me on a trail or in a park, don’t forget to say Hi!

Michael Alvarez Parks & Recreation Commissioner


CITY OF RICHLAND PARKS AND PUBLIC FACILITIES I would like to introduce you to the Parks and Public Facilities Department staff. Within this department you will find the Recreation, Parks and Facilities, Capital Improvement and Library Divisions. All of the activities and events that you see in this Activity Guide are brought to you by these folks. They are very dedicated to bringing you the finest programming. All staff are activity programmers. Many employees are working in different capacities, such as: maintaining buildings, parks and ball fields or designing and engineering new infrastructure. Regardless of the assignment, this team strives to provide only the best here in Richland.


COLUMBIA POINT GOLF COURSE First Green of Washington Links as Labs www.thefirstgreen.org Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Carl Thompson and I’m the Certified Golf Course Superintendent at Columbia Point Golf Course here in Richland. I recently joined the First Green of Washington Links as Labs program. I’m looking to partner with local teachers in using Columbia Point as an outdoor classroom for your STEM curriculum. The First Green was established to provide and promote environmental education. They connect educators with superintendents to host outdoor ‘learning labs’ on their golf courses. This type of lab allows students to perform hands-on experiments and tests within the focus of the school’s environmental science and horticulture curriculum. The First Green was founded in 1997 in the greater Seattle area. This organization achieved tremendous popularity and quickly gained the support of national, regional and local groups. Currently there are programs in Washington, Oregon, California, New Jersey, Florida and British Columbia. There are a number of different topics you can choose for these learning stations– it all depends on your specific agenda. I’ve been provided a Resource Kit with additional lesson plans available on the First Green website. These plans are flexible and easily combined in various ways. Some examples of lesson plans include:    

Measuring irregular areas such as putting green square footage. Volume Calculations – for instance how much sand is needed to topdress a green to a ¼ inch depth? Using a soil sieve device to determine percentages of sand, silt and clay. Testing water quality and pH.

Call today and I’ll include a fun golf activity for your kids. When the lesson is over they can participate in a putting contest. Give your kids a field trip they’ll never forget!

Fit Moms with Abigail Class starts with introductions and warm up which is 5-8 minutes long. Introduce yourself and your children while slowly warming up the muscles and working up the heart rate. Moms will then power walk or jog to the next exercise station. The level of intensity is up to the participant and we offer different modifications based on their specific needs. For safety and liability the children remain fastened into their strollers for the duration of the workout. If at any point the child needs to be attended to (nurse, diaper, tantrum) the mother is more than welcome to pause and tend to the child. Our different exercise stations will target different areas to offer a balanced full-body workout in every class. As a unique fitness solution for moms we incorporate the children to the workout through singing songs, blowing bubbles, reading stories, playing with puppets and other stimulating activities. For all detailed information and to register go to: www.richland.fit4mom.com

We welcome all who share our lifestyle of enjoying a good swim, bike or run. The 3 Rivers Road Runners are for runners and triathletes of all shapes and sizes, from the veteran ultra-marathoner or Ironman triathlete to the beginner working towards that first 5 km fun run or sprint triathlon, and everyone in between. The primary goal of the 3 Rivers Road Runners is to promote running and multi-sport events in the Tri-Cities. Besides providing events for our members and athletes in the region, we hope to attract new athletes to the club that can benefit from the healthful, positive lifestyle gained through running and multi-sport. Over the years, one primary focus has been fitness for the children in our area and the battle against childhood obesity. We have helped raise thousands of dollars for local elementary school physical education programs through our Leprechaun Dash fun run in March. Our running club not only gives back to the running community, we give back to the community at large.

Sports Concussion and Head Injuries (Zachary Lystedt Law) A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are serious. They are caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or by a blow to another part of the body with the force transmitted to the head. They can range from mild to severe and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Even though most concussions are mild, all concussions are potentially serious and may result in complications including prolonged brain damage and death if not recognized and managed properly. In other words, even a “ding” or bump on the head can be serious. You can’t see a concussion and most sports concussions occur without loss of consciousness. Signs and symptoms of concussion may show up right after the injury, or can take hours to fully appear. If your child reports any symptoms of concussion, or if you notice the symptoms or signs of concussion yourself, seek attention right away. For current and up-to-date information on concussions go to: www.cdc.gov/concussion Photo Release Photographs of participants may be taken for promotional purposes. Please notify staff or photographer if you do not wish to have your photograph taken.
