Credit Island Updates

Credit Island Park is still closed until further notice. Public Works staff will begin work on repairing the causeway access into the park over the coming weeks. Once access is open again, Parks staff will be able to clear debris and put tables back into shelters. 

Nature & Garden Programs Grow
New this spring and summer, the number of nature and garden programs and workshops has doubled compared to previous years. Not only are there programs for kids and families, but teens and adults as well. To learn more visit the Nature and Garden page or turn to page 18-19 in the Spring/Summer 2023 Recreation Guide
