The City of Atlantic’s Parks and Recreation Department Board of Directors will meet Monday afternoon in the Senior Center, beginning at 5:15. On their agenda is a presentation of the final site plan for a Senior Activities Area at Sunnyside Park. As discussed during their meeting last month, among other features, the Activities Area will include a horseshoe throwing pit, thanks to  a donation of labor, and planning expertise from the Trevor Frederickson Foundation and Dean Orstad family.

The Parks Board will also discuss: the Summer Recreation Program, as well as the final plan with approved recommendations, and a YMCA Management Fee. In other business, the Board will discuss and possibly act on various Capital Projects for the Spring and Summer, including the renovation and refurbishing of the Camblin and Kiddie Korral’s, the Painting of lines on basketball and pickle ball courts and the purchase of related equipment, and a Sunnyside Park/Camblin Addition Tree Replacement Plan in anticipation of an Emerald Ash Borer infestation.
