Parks and Recreation receives grant

The Parks and Recreation Department recently received a $363,000 grant from Hennepin County to establish new recreation programs for youth in the time of COVID-19. 

Look forward to things like mobile REC programming, take-home summer camps, a fishing fair, paddle board and learn-to-bike classes, and more. 

“We want to do everything we can to keep Bloomington youth enjoying local parks safely,” Recreation Manager Alison Warren said. “This grant will help us provide new, fun opportunities to do just that.”
