Experience summer in Bloomington as Parks and Recreation offers a variety of exciting, entertaining, educational, inclusive and competitive experiences for people of all ages, abilities and interests. Due to health and safety uncertainties, availability of partner resources, and shortfalls in participation and staffing, several programs, including Camp Kota, The View and Mini View have been canceled for 2021. However, many other engaging youth programs remain scheduled.
On March 1, 2021, the Bloomington City Council approved terms of a 3-year agreement for Three Rivers Park District to manage Hyland Greens Golf and Learning Center beginning with the 2021 golf season. The driving range opened for the 2021 season on April 2 and the course will open soon. For course information and other details, visit Three Rivers Park District's website.
Bloomington Parks and Recreation is dedicated to making our parks ethnically and culturally diverse as well as equitable, inclusive, and relevant. It is our priority to build relationships with our community and break down barriers that are inhibiting residents from visiting the parks. We are committed to continually seek ways to better deliver park and recreation services, programming, and community events that connect people across cultures to the parks and one another.
