West Linn parks offers something for everyone

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Toddler Tunes Intro is one of the classes offered through West Linn Parks and Recreation this winter.

In the past year, did you participate in a camp, program or attend a class or special event presented by West Linn Parks and Recreation?

We really want to hear what you like, what you would like to see more of or how we can improve your experiences in the future. We invite you to take part in a continuing conversation at facebook.com/WestLinnParksandRec.

Throughout the year we are going to ask for your advice. We are here for you and we want you to be excited to sign up for classes, send the kids to camp, attend the Old Time Fair and Music in the Park. You will be asked to select the Movies in the Park, and pick a theme for the 2014 holiday parade.
