UNDER CONSTRUCTION
The construction on the walking pathway in Kantor Park has begun!  We anticipate this project to be done by mid November.  This project will extend the pathway on the south side of the grass field, so now walkers will be able to complete an entire "crazy 8" around the entire Kantor Park.  At this point you will notice snow fencing and silt fencing up marking where this work will take place.  We are not closing the existing walkways in the park while work is being done on this extension.  However, we ask you to use extreme caution on weekdays while work is being done on the pathway extension, and please stay back from those areas fenced off during the project.  There will also be some staging areas for equipment and materials near the bathroom building. 
Thank you for your cooperation and patience with us as we work to improve the "walkability" of the pathway system in the park.

 "I'm on a Wait List for a program.  What does that mean?"
Some of our programs have a maximum # of participants that can be registered for any number of reasons such as physical space limitations, established ratios between our instructors and participants, equipment/material available, etc.  
If you have added your name to a wait list (always at no charge), you will be contacted only if space becomes available.  If you are still interested in the program; your registration on the wait list will move over to the intended program, and you will be asked to go in and apply payment to secure your spot in the program. If you are no longer interested, we will just remove your name from the wait list and continue on down the list.
