City newsletter, activities brochure available
This combined publication contains a variety of information and news about what's happening with the City of Shakopee. In the Hometown Messenger, read about the development of Ridge Creek Park, a new style of park that promotes passive recreation and highlights the area's natural beauty.
You'll also find information about the new Pathways of Shakopee's History trail at Memorial Park. This interpretive trail tells the story of the area's history through kiosks and landmarks.
Read about two long-time Public Works employees, Todd Brinkhaus and Mike Hullander, who are retiring this winter after 83 combined years of service to the city. The city newsletter also has a lot of information about summer road projects, Clean Up Day, crime prevention events and much more.
The Parks and Recreation brochure contains information about summer programming for all ages. This edition we feature the department's Learn to Swim program, which offers lessons for the beginner through advanced swimmer. Also, get ready for SandVenture Aquatic Park, which opens June 10. We're offering a special, discounted season pass option for current Community Center members.
It's not too early to start planning your kids' activities, sports and camps this summer. Keep them busy with a variety of programs and special events all summer long.
Older active adults will find more programs and trips than ever before. Whatever your interest, you'll find something to do this summer.
Parks and Recreation program registration begins Tuesday, March 12.
The brochure is mailed to all Shakopee residences and is also available at the Community Center, City Hall and on the city website.
