Last week we heard from John Gibbs, 5th District Commissioner of the 3 Rivers Park District. The 3 Rivers Park District was established in 1957 to oversee parks & trails of over 27,000 acres of areas that flow into the Mississippi, Minnesota and Crow Rivers. In Richfield, they participate in Taft Park and the 9 Mile Creek Regional Trail. They have established a 20 year plan with main points in 3 parts:
You Belong: accessibility - making areas welcoming & convenient to all people.
Parks Matter: environmental stewardship to positively impact wildlife habitat, air & water quality.
Lead by Example: to be intentional & innovative in meeting needs of today and tomorrow.
