The Taylorville Park Board has many fun and interesting activities for kids and adults alike upcoming in summer and spring.

Coming up on March 8th there is a meal being prepared for the Senior Citizens. The meal will include Beef and Vegetable Stew.

The Park Board will also be celebrating Earth Day on Sunday April, 22nd. This event will be held at the Boys Scout Pavilion in Manner's Park.

Day Camp is always a big event for the park and that will continue this year with the idea of having a salsa garden and a pizza garden. The contents of the garden will be used for a pizza and a salsa party.

Another issue on the docket at the meeting was starting a running club similar to running clubs in Springfield and Decatur.

It was not all good news at the meeting though as Park Maintenance Superintendent Gary Brand had concern over the gully near the newly cleaned up pond at Manner's Park.

Brand's concern was about young children jumping and climbing near a big drop-off that could potentially cause serious damage.

Brand did have an idea to put a fence up with a sign warning people of the potential danger to lessen the risk of injury.
