Update on Current Improvement Projects Great things are happening in the City of Good Living! Check out what’s to come in 2018‌ Highlands Park Playground and Restroom Renovation

The Highlands Park Renovation project will be wrapping up in the New Year. We are thrilled for the unveiling of the new playground, which will include an expanded playground, new and challenging climbing play features, an Oodle Swing, a seated sun deck, independent climbing pieces, rubber surfacing, and an upgraded pathway to Stadium Field. The new restroom building will increase capacity and include a family restroom. Look for information on our ribbon cutting ceremony in January! Burton Park Restroom Replacement

The new restroom building at Burton Park, adjacent to the playground and stage, will have increased capacity to accommodate our well-used park! The restrooms at the southend adjacent to Flanagan Field will undergo a complete renovation with new tile, counters and fixtures. Construction of the new and updated restrooms will begin in spring 2018 with an anticipated opening by summer 2018. Youth Center Remodel

Just shy of 20 years after the opening of the Youth Center, the

facility will undergo updates and improvements. Construction is tentatively scheduled to begin spring 2018 and will include repair to the exterior wood fascia, window sealants and roof. The project also includes reconfiguration of the front desk, new lobby and hallway flooring, new gym bleachers, interior and exterior paint, restroom repairs and updated IT cabling throughout the building. Programs currently operating out of the Youth Center will be temporarily relocated to other facilities. Participates will receive more information on program relocation and operations after the New Year.

Recreation classes for little ones offer many benefits. Early exposure to music helps develop areas of the brain that involve language and reasoning. Students of the arts learn to think creatively and solve problems. Dance helps children mature physically, emotionally, and socially.

Get Fit to Travel

Exercise is an important part of the health and wellness of seniors. It helps increase your metabolism, energy levels, and alertness. Research shows that those suffering from chronic illness benefit from exercise even if it is done while sitting in a chair. Chair exercises are great for older adults, those with disabilities, poor balance, or anyone who has trouble standing or getting on the floor to do exercises. They are always gentle on the body and generally safe for most people to do. It is always a good idea to talk to your doctor before beginning a new exercise program, but you are not likely to injure yourself doing any of these exercises. Bring a 5 lb. dumbbell weight with you to the first class. Be sure to wear loose clothing and comfortable, supportive shoes. No cost. M/W/F 9:00am-10:00am Ongoing ACC

Senior Fencing

Senior Fencing is an interesting way to exercise for seniors. The movements, agility training, and non-traumatic contact is perfect for seniors, even those with light-to-moderate disabilities like arthritis or joint replacements. People need variety to help make their exercise a life-long endeavor and fencing is a great addition to the mix.
