2022 by the numbers (4)

This is a visual representation of the impact our Parks and and Recreation Department has! We continue to deliver park and recreation experiences that promote healthy lifestyles, enhanced social connections, and fun in our community. 

To those who have participated in our programs, used our facilities, golfed at our golf course, swam in our pool, played at the splash pad and playgrounds, rented a park or rec space, follow us on social media, to everything in between, I say thank you! We have the privilege to provide these services to you all. Our team motto is "We have fun but we get stuff done." That is evident in these numbers for 2022. Thank you for utilizing our department, whatever fashion that may have been in 2022. 

I'm extremely proud of our team. We are pulled in so many different directions and I ask a lot out them. They continue to answer the call. This is a total team effort from not only our Parks and Rec team but all the other City of Pontiac departments. We could not do this without them!
