by Jon Thompson, Mayor, City of Coolidge
In this issue, I’d like to talk about our great parks and recreation programs available to the community.
Coolidge is proud to offer quality classes and leagues that help our youth, teens, and adults build friendships and teamwork. We’ve been fortunate to offer these programs again this year, as many were put on hold due to the pandemic. Coolidge wants to make sure the community has access to a wide assortment of activities for all to enjoy.
In addition to our recreation programs, our newly constructed Coolidge Aquatics Center will be open again this coming summer. This will be the second season celebrating the fantastic citizen support we received to build such a facility.
Some of the highlights of the center include a splash pad, waterslide, championship pool, and large covered spaces for the community to stay cool. Our local support of this project, along with a newly reconstructed roadway along the center, make this a focal piece for summer fun!
I’d like to highlight some of the upcoming programs for the community to enjoy.
You don’t need to be a resident to sign up for our programs. We encourage everyone to participate to build friendships and stay active. Take a moment to review the activities below or feel free to visit our website to learn more about these fantastic opportunities: www.coolidgeaz.com/parks.
