We are blessed to have some really nice outdoor spaces around Evansville. The Department of Parks and Recreation knows that, and they want you to get out and enjoy those spaces. Their new Park-N-Rec programs continues TODAY (8/7) at Bellemeade Park on Evansville's east side.

Park-N-Rec is a mobile recreation program that will visit different neighborhood parks around the city on the first and third Friday of each month, now through October.

The Parks Department Assistant Sport Director, McKenzie May says, “Park-N-Rec provides a variety of activities for families and children between the ages of 5 and 14 years to participate in. We will also have giveaways for children to win.”
