Fishers Celebrates Seventh Consecutive Designation as a Playful City USA
Playability is essential to any thriving community, and the City of Fishes is no different. In Fishers, Mayor Fadness and his team recognize the importance of playability, and under the Mayor’s direction, Fishers Parks & Recreation works year-round to ensure residents have diverse opportunities for play regardless of their age or ability level. “We are honored to have been named a 2015 Playful City USA community,” stated Mayor Scott Fadness. “Aside from the physical and mental health advantages, playability is crucial to the success of our future. Our long-term sustainability is dependent on having a strong sense of community offering residents opportunities to create traditions right here in Fishers.” Fishers Parks & Recreation staff work diligently to identify recreation needs in our community. This Saturday, June 20, the department invites residents of all ages to Roy G. Holland Memorial Park for Monsoon Madness. This particular event promises waterlogged fun from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is free for residents to attend. Outside of events, the department is also committed to bringing diverse amenities to Fishers. “Recently Roy G. Holland Memorial Park was renovated with a new playground and splash pad, construction is underway at our new destination park, Flat Fork Creek Park, and pickleball courts are being installed at Cyntheanne Park,” stated Fishers Parks & Recreation director, Tony Elliot. “Fishers Parks & Recreation is committed to providing residents with unique opportunities for play year-round.” Connect with Fishers Parks & Recreation on Facebook and Twitter to be the first to know about upcoming events and happenings!
