The Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Department is pleased to invite the public to come out and celebrate the dedication of new recreational amenities at Hogtown Creek Headwaters Nature Park, located at 1500 NW 45th Ave. A formal presentation will take place Friday, Oct. 12 from 10-11 a.m., followed by demonstrations of the new fitness equipment and a guided nature walk. Attendees should dress comfortably so they can enjoy all of the fun! Parking for the event is courtesy of Baha’i Assembly (4451 NW 19th Ave.), and a shuttle van will take event attendees to the park and back.

The new improvements at Hogtown Creek Headwaters Nature Park offer something for everyone. Kids will enjoy a new playground featuring lots of climbers, swings and a zip line, while people of all ages can channel their inner musician as they play on the new outdoor musical instruments. Fitness enthusiasts can flex their muscles on the new outdoor fitness equipment and jog along the shady nature trail. The parking lot was also expanded so the park can accommodate more visitors.
