Celebrate the Enduring Power of Community Parks and Recreation this July

Park-Rec-month-Banner-Ad-300x250px

Month-long celebration highlights essential value of parks and recreation for local communities

Hoffman Estates residents know their parks and recreation facilities provide places to get active, explore nature or connect with fellow community members. But what they may not know is that their parks and recreation also contribute to improved health outcomes, higher property values and environmental sustainability.

Parks and recreation have the power to strengthen communities, transform lives and protect the future. That’s why this year, Hoffman Estates joins cities across the country in celebrating the power of parks and recreation for the 30th anniversary of Park and Recreation Month—an annual event created by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and celebrated in July since 1985.

Congratulations Mites Hockey!

Our Coyote Mites won the Mites Blue Collar Aurora Borealis Championship series at Big Bear for AAU! Congratulations team!

From Randy Jordan, Assistant Manager of Ice Operations, “Our Coyotes Mite travel team is becoming a major force. After losing a tough game Friday night, our squad came back to dominate the same team in the final Sunday, but due to running into a very hot goalie had to go to the second overtime period before Jacob Borzecki made a great rush and move to score the 3-2 winner, in a game that proved Mite hockey can be well played at an exciting level at full ice where every player has a major contribution. Although we are playing with a larger than usual roster for Mites, Coaches Chesney, Harazin and Somen did a great job of giving every player the ice time where more players than usual have gained a ton by the experience.”undefined

 

Controlled Burns

Each year, our Parks Services Division has scheduled “ecological burns” for several of our natural areas throughout our parks. The burns are an effective way of burning away plant life. There are many benefits to this process, including helping to eliminate non-native, invasive plant species, adds nutrients to the soil and stimulates native species. To learn more, read on or watch a short video.
