Parks improve the quality of life for Perris residents in a myriad of ways.
Some folks use the City’s parks to play organized sports like soccer, baseball and football while others frequent them to toss a Frisbee with friends or take a walk. Others use parks as a haven for quiet time to read a book or enjoy a picnic lunch with their children. Still other residents take advantage of City programs like “Movies in the Park” or “Strut Your Mutt” or “The End of Summer Splash.”
The City of Perris is sponsoring a contest to find out exactly what motivates residents to get out and enjoy the parks.
The “Parks Make Life Better” contest seeks testimonials and photos from residents explaining how Perris parks brighten their days. Prizes will be awarded to contest winners. The contest concludes July.
“Parks are a great asset to our community and we want to celebrate the impact they have on our City, how they help make memories many people,” said Recreation Leader Juan Rodriguez, who is supervising the contest. “We want to know how parks make peoples’ lives better.
The Parks Make Life Better contest resulted from input from the recently formed Community Development Committee.
Prizes include a two-month pass to the City fitness center in the Bob Glass Gymnasium, $25 off any Fall 2016 recreation program and four tickets to the DropZone aquatics center. In addition, the City will frame and submit winning entries to the photo contest at the annual Southern California Fair in October.
