Jacob's Review:
   I really like the playground. The track that goes around the park is a lot of fun too because I can ride my bike while my dad runs on it. I've seen people walking their dog on the track too. I think the little dog I saw was too tired and wanted to lay in the grass instead of walking because he was going slower and slower and his owner kept looking at him. But my favorite thing at the Lions Club Park is the pool (Aquatics Center). It's a BLAST!!!
   I had so much fun. I wish it stayed open later though because I could have gone down the awesome slides a bunch more times. I was having so much fun that I almost didn't notice that I was hungry because I just wanted to stay in the water and keep playing.


Dad's Notes:
   The track that Jacob mentioned is nice for running or walking on. It goes around the park and is pretty well lit, especially when there are games being held on the ball fields. They seem to be working on the park, making improvements all the time.

   The Family Rec Center has awesome hours….5am-10pm Monday-Friday and 7am-8pm Saturday and they're even open on Sunday. The whole family can workout here together and it's affordable because their family membership costs about the same as a single membership at one of the local gyms. They have an indoor track, really nice when the weather isn't; basketball court; fitness machines; they even offer fitness classes at different times of the day to make it easier to take a class. I'm thinking about trying some that I've not done before. It'd be nice if they had an indoor pool but they have the Aquatics Center right behind the rec center, but it's not open all year since it's outside. Maybe when they are deciding what improvement to make next, they'll put in an indoor pool (hint, hint)

   Aquatics Center: A great and fairly inexpensive place to bring the whole family. I like how they separated the different pool areas to keep kiddos safe. When we went, it wasn't that crowded but I can imagine what it would be like on a weekend with kiddos running everywhere and it could be hard to keep up with them and not run into another kiddo. But it was a lot of fun. They don't allow outside food or drinks, not even water. And no, you can't sneak food in because they check your bag. Food prices there range from $1-$3, depending upon what you order and it's not a lot of food so I suggest you eat before you go. The bathrooms do not have soap, so you'll probably want to bring hand sanitizer.

Jacob Tip:   Kids can learn to take pictures with disposable camera's or cheap digital cameras, or even your old phone. (You can start a photo album of their pictures!) For better pictures get a lot closer than you think you should!
