Parks & Recreation

The Parks & Recreation Board of Union County would like to thank all who came out to the Comprehensive Parks Master Plan Meeting on November 2nd.

This meeting was a great opportunity for everyone to participate in being a part of seeking a Parks & Recreation Grant for our county.

Lose & Associates, Inc. did a fantastic job of presenting. Their program allowed each person a hands-on experience to express wants and wishes for each park in Union County. It was fun and a good opportunity to network with each other. Lose & Assoc. will take all input from this meeting and put together a follow-up of the most wanted recreational needs for each park in the county.

The follow-up meeting should be sometime in December and we look forward to seeing you back again. If you were unable to attend the meeting we hope you make the next one. The date and time will be posted here on www.HistoricUnionCounty.com.

Again, thank you to all who attended and a special thanks to the County Commissioners who attended.
