A Message From The Parks & Recreation Director A

s usual the Parks & Recreation Department has lots of plans for 2017. We are hoping to complete Phase I of Breeze Park this summer which includes a new restroom. Another project that you may not have heard much about is Diversion Park. Currently there is a ground roots effort underway to design and construct a water feature and boat launch on the Yampa River near the City of Craig’s intake structure. Future plans for Diversion Park include a parking lot and a picnic area complete with tables, shelters and a small playground system. If you are interested in helping make this park a reality you can make 100% tax deductible donation to “Community Foundation of Northwest Colorado and write “Diversion Park” on the memo line. Checks can be mailed to PO Box 653 Craig, CO 81626. As always, don’t forget to TAKE A BREAK AND RECREATE!

What is more wonderful than to watch a kids face light up when they hit the ball for the first time, scores their first goal or execute a perfect front dive. Studies have shown that kids, who participate in Parks and Recreation activities do better in school, develop self- confidence, optimism and initiative. These programs help get kids off to a positive start in life. Unfortunately not all the children in our community can afford to participate in these programs. Why not donate to the Parks and Recreation Scholarship Fund? One hundred percent of your donation will go towards giving a child the opportunity to participate in one of the many programs we offer.
