To promote recycling in our Parks, Parker, our friendly red fox mascot, will be out and about in our parks trying to “catch” kids recycling. If caught by Parker, he is rewarding kids with gift certificates for ice cream and other treats at local restaurants. Dear Resident of Green, Welcome to the first edition of the Parks and Recreation Spring/Summer Special Events and Activity Guide. Green’s award-winning parks are an important part of our community. Our Parks and Recreation Division offers many fun family events throughout the year that brings us together as a community. As our parks have grown through the years, so has our ability to offer fun recreation programs for adults, seniors and children. This Spring/Summer guide provides a listing of all the programs we offer as well as details on special events in our parks. So now that Spring has emerged from under all the snow encountered this past winter, I hope you get a chance to get out and enjoy our Green Parks!
