Parks & Recreation Celebrates 50 Years

Spotlight image: Parks & Recreation Celebrates 50 Years

This summer, we continue to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Parks and Recreation. In the Spring issue of the "Recreator," we covered the formation and growth of Recreation. In the 80s and 90s, our burgeoning community's need for more recreational opportunities expanded and Parks and Recreation Departments was poised to provide. More than 64,000 residents called Fort Collins Home in the early 80s. Parks and Recreation worked hard to keep pace with the community's growth. As we continue to celebrate, visit our site often for updates about upcoming events and celebration activities.

While we look back at last year it is also important for us to focus on the future of Recreation Services for Fort Collins. We look forward to providing you with high quality recreational opportunities in 2016 and beyond.
