2022 - Parks Message

Message from Parks and Recreation Director Creighton Wright

Creighton Wright

We have many excellent parks and recreation amenities available to our community, from the Cortez Recreation Center to the Conquistador Golf Course to the Outdoor Pool and surrounding parks and open space preserves. Please go outside, take a walk, run, trail ride, or play at a playground!

We also offer many classes and programs. In the last few months, we have begun offering several new classes in the Recreation Center. Boy's Basketball is opening soon, as well as Adult Co-ed Volleyball. There are other opportunities too. Please flip through our web pages to find other programs to enjoy. 

We are in a building phase. The pandemic left us thin on staffing, programming, and opportunities. In early 2022, we have begun to emerge and grow. Staffing levels have slowly risen, extending the Rec Center hours and increasing class offerings. One significant challenge continues to be the recruitment of lifeguards, which has limited pool hours and programming. Despite the challenges, we continue to offer more to the community. 

I look forward to building community, encouraging health and fitness, and inspiring fun and access to parks and open spaces!
