New additions in 2013: Morris Broadband Dog Park and Park Ridge Health EnergiPrime fitness circuit exercise pad will open in April.
Quote: "Nobody has their own green space," says parks Director Greg Walker. "Homes are all in developments or condominiums, or property owners don't have a lot open space. People want to be out and have green space to walk and exercise. No. 2, a park brings kind of a community of shared-mind users, so there's that social aspect. People meet and develop friendships."
