Recreation Junction

Summer is winding down, but the Lake County Recreation Department has a few programs starting this month to keep you busy.

Making Messes is Fun is a new program, geared toward children ages one through five. Join us in a variety of messy art activities using mud, paint, shaving cream and more. This program will meet on Fridays, starting Aug. 23, from 9 - 10 a.m. at the Huck Finn Ice Rink. Parents must stay and play!

Come and try out the tennis courts at Huck Finn Park on Wednesdays starting Aug. 21 from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. Our Youth Tennis program will introduce the skills of tennis, including how to use a racquet, the different strokes (lob, volley, backhand), serving technique and basic rules. Learn new skills and a game you can enjoy for life!

The deadline for youth soccer was August 7. Contact Karen Lewis at or 719-486-7494 to find out if there are spots still available.

To finish off the summer, come and have fun playing coed, 7 vs. 7 flag football. Starting Thursday, Aug. 15, this fun, non-contact league helps everyone get moving and enjoy the beautiful fall in the mountains. The cost is $250/team.

Our fall programs are now open for registration. To register for any of our programs visit
