“Summer in the City” events have returned to Coon Rapids parks. It’s an opportunity for residents to speak directly with city staff and council members while having fun outside.
The first neighborhood meeting was held at River Wind Park on June 25 and featured pickle ball lessons, fire trucks, police cars, public works equipment, free ice cream and tours of the newly renovated Riverwind Community Building.
“In the evening, people are coming home from work, they can walk right across the street and meet with all the different departments and get their questions answered,” said Recreation Supervisor Ryan Gunderson.
Two more Summer in the City neighborhood meetings are currently scheduled:
July 23 - Crooked Lake Park Blvd, 13180 Crooked Lake Blvd.
July 30 - Moor Park, 10921 Magnolia Street
The meetings run from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
