Summer is here, and we are celebrating with free Zumba in the park, Summer of Music, Fourth of July, little league, a Parks Scavenger Hunt and more!

Throughout July, the City of Glenwood Springs is celebrating Park and Recreation Month, an initiative of the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), and all the ways parks and recreation has the power to transform our daily lives. From providing us places to play, get fit and stay healthy to fostering new relationships and forging a connection with nature, our close-to-home community park and recreation facilities provide essential services and improve quality of life.
