HIGH POINT, N.C. -- With spring just 11 days away, the High Point Parks and Recreation Department is repairing and cleaning up its parks and facilities.

Alisa Thiele is spending time with her family at Armstrong Park. She appreciates the hard work done by city workers. "They are getting the park ready for all the kids to play; it’s great."

City workers are picking up broken branches and spreading additional mulch around the new play set at Armstrong Park. You might recall that the old play set was crushed by a tree that fell during last March’s ice storm.

Meanwhile at Oak Hollow Golf Course, workers are ripping out the cracked golf cart paths and replacing them with new pavement.

While there's lots of outside work going on, Parks and Recreation Marketing Coordinator Paige Mone is producing the department's latest leisure guide. The magazine has lots of spring and summer programs for city residents.

"There are many high quality, low cost programs for individuals and families to exercise and stretch your brain, spend some time together," Mone said.
