LOOK FOR YOUR COPY OF PARK AND REC’S “GET GOING GUIDE” NOW STARTING DISTRIBUTION IN MANY VENUES AND ONLINE!

September 9, 2009

Charlotte, NC—Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department is now distributing 115,000 copies of its fall/winter Get Going Guide, a magazine that lists many recreation programs, classes and facilities--hundreds of indoor and outdoor activities.

Get Going Guide is a great resource for:

  • Finding free and inexpensive things to do for fun and fitness
  • Joining sports leagues and competition for youngsters and adults
  • Getting out into the natural environment on beautiful fall days
  • Discovering classes and activities at recreation and nature centers
  • Participating in swim lessons and aquatic recreation
  • Encouraging kids to be active on out-of school days.

Park and Recreation is distributing 67,000 copies of the colorful illustrated magazine this week, through Charlotte-Mecklenburg elementary schools. Copies will also be available at recreation centers, nature centers, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Government Center, branch libraries, Park and Recreation’s administrative office, and in selected news boxes around the city. Get Going Guide is also online at www.parkandrec.com.

Many individuals and families in Mecklenburg County rely on the Get Going Guide to help them get the broadest use of parks, recreation centers, nature centers, aquatic facilities, greenways, nature preserves, athletics and the many other facilities and services offered by Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation. The department is supported by both tax dollars and user fees, and part of the cost of publishing Get Going Guide is paid for by private advertising.

Park and Recreation urges citizens to “get going” with Get Going Guide.  Keep a copy handy to consult for things to do this fall and winter. Or bookmark www.parkandrec.com on your computer to check what’s going on, anytime.
 
Get Going Guide helps Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation live up to its motto: “the natural place to be!”
