Park City is ready to play

The coming of spring in Park City means the arrival of the much anticipated PLAY Magazine from the Park City Recreation and Snyderville Basin Recreation Departments.

The comprehensive guide to the area’s recreational and leisure activities is produced annually to provide residents with all of the information they need. Once again, this year’s version is two-sided with separate listings for activities in Park City and the Basin. PLAY magazine editor Melanie Miller says that this year’s version is the most-streamlined to date, and residents should find it easy to use.

According to Park City Recreation program coordinator Tate Shaw, the magazine has a little bit of everything, including schedules and times for the Park City Ice Arena, the Park City Library and the Park City Golf Course.

Of course, the most important use for the PLAY magazine for Park City parents is signing their children up for summer camps and activities. With registration opening April 1, families will have just a matter of days to review the material and grab one of the coveted spots in the skateboard, adventure and soccer camps as well as summer swimming lessons.

"As soon as you get it in your hands, figure out what you want," Shaw said.

Parents will also be happy to find non-sports activities such as art classes, book clubs and safety programs. Instructions for making reservations at the golf course and reservation a park facility are also in the magazine.

Every activity offered by the two entities is included in the magazine, complete with the date, time, location and program overview. Tate says there is "something for the whole family," with listings for adult sport leagues and dog obedience included alongside the youth classes and camps. Major recreational events and tournaments are also listed.

"That’s the best resource," Shaw said. "Even us in the office pull it out to check on programs."

The resource covers activities for all four seasons. Once again, the publication will have a pull-out calendar with the program referenced by date a corresponding page to find more information.

Residents may notice that some junior and adult programs have changed, but Miller says that many new ones were added in their place. They will also notice that the Ice Arena section is far more comprehensive with specific program descriptions and registration information, as opposed to as simple list of offerings last year.

Miller says that she expects the guide to arrive in resident’s mailboxes on Thursday, March 29. Any person with a Post Office Box in the Park City School District will receive the magazine. Copies may also be found at the Park City Racquet Club, the Basin Recreation Field House and Trailside Park.
