Plan how you will play this summer in Park City

by Jay Hamburger OF THE RECORD STAFF

Parkites can now plan how they will play this summer.

The Park City Recreation Department has distributed the annual Play Magazine, a publication that outlines numerous summer programs, from dog-obedience classes to skateboard camps for youngsters.

The Recreation Department sent the magazine March 10 to postal patrons throughout Park City and the Snyderville Basin. Michelle Stucker, an analyst for the Recreation Department, said just more than 11,000 copes were sent.

Play Magazine this year covers programs inside Park City. The Snyderville Basin Special Recreation District opted not to participate in the publication this year, Stucker said.

The magazine arrives as registration for summer programs, which starts in April, nears. Readers will receive an overview of the programs in Play Magazine.

"I think it’s huge. I think people anticipate the arrival of Play Magazine," Stucker said, adding that the summer is the busiest season for the Recreation Department.

Some of the topics that the magazine covers include:

  • The workout space at 1255 Iron Horse Drive
  • tennis programs
  • aquatic programs
  • youth programs like a kickball league, an adventure camp, a skateboard camp and dirt jump bicycle clinics
  • adult sports leagues, including softball leagues and soccer leagues

    The publication also includes sections about the Park City Ice Arena, the Park City Library and Education Center and the Park City Golf Club.

    Play Magazine provides information about the days of the week the programs are offered, times and prices.

    "What people get out of it is what there is to do here," Stucker said, adding, "It encompasses all things recreation for Park City."

    Stucker said the Recreation Department had 11,800 copies printed. It cost $13,232 to design, print and mail the publication, she said.

    Additional copies are available at the workout space at 1255 Iron Horse Drive, the tennis courts at the Racquet Club location, the Library and Education Center, the Ice Arena and the Marsac Building. They will also be available at the Park City Golf Club once it opens for the season.

    The publication arrives as work continues at the Racquet Club site, with the construction crews putting up a new facility that will be called the Park City Recreation Center. It is scheduled to debut in the fall.
