07/03/13 Summertime has a full slate of action in the Plymouth parks and the board heard a report of those activities on Monday.
The dog park opened near the sledding hill in Centennial Park over the weekend and the summer concert series at the Young Amphitheatre will get underway this weekend with the 38th Infantry Band.
Park Board member Jim Causey had concerns over paint used to mark the route used for the annual breast cancer fundraiser the Ta-Ta Trot on the Greenway Trail. Causey stated that part of using the trail has always been that it is marked by signs and not by paint.
Hite told the board that he had discussed the situation with the events organizers and was told that the paint was “chalk paint” and would wash away with rain. If not the organizers agreed they would take action to get rid of the markings to the park’s approval.
Sara Smith gave the board a report on numbers involved in the Plymouth tennis program from Director Michael Delp.
This summer there are 25 children age 6 and under involved in the tennis program in the park with 60 children between age 7 and 10 participating. Junior High age players have 40 members involved and another 40 take part in the high school age programming.
Adult leagues on the courts now have 80 members on a regular basis.
