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 activites.
