by Jon Thompson, Mayor, City of Coolidge
I’d like to focus on the great park system in Coolidge.
We are fortunate to have 11 parks offering playgrounds, basketball courts, walking paths, and more. The dedicated Parks and Recreation staff helps to ensure the parks are clean, safe, and well maintained.
Coolidge really believes in providing a great experience throughout the city and the Parks and Recreation department delivers through planning, maintenance, and enhancing all parks. One of these enhancements is our designation as a Tree City USA. We’ve been honored to receive this award for the past 18 years!
Coolidge plants many new trees in our parks and city-maintained areas. In 2021, we planted 17 with a goal of planting 80 more in 2022.
Parks and Recreation also maintains the activity centers in the city including the Adult Center, Youth Center, and our brand new Aquatics Center, which has received excellent reviews from citizens and visitors.
The Adult Center provides activities and meals to our senior community who know the center as a safe, reliable space to meet friends and make new ones. Coolidge Youth Center is a main hub of activity for our younger generation who can take in indoor basketball or perhaps join in on a game of pool. Finally, our new Aquatic Center features summer water fun with a waterslide, play area for the little ones, and a championship league pool for competition.
You can learn more about all of our parks by visiting www.coolidgeaz.com/parks.
