park users need to note several informational items.
As the days grow shorter and it gets
dark sooner, the park restrooms will
begin to close a little earlier. When it
comes time for freezing weather,
most restrooms will be winterized and closed so the pipes don’t freeze. “For those who enjoy the parks, please keep
an eye out for vandalism, a big problem
in our parks”, says Jan Scott
with parks and recreation. “Help us keep the parks nice for the community and report vandals to the
police department”, she states.
Dogs in the Park
Yukon dogs enjoy the parks as much
as their owners. There are a few requests from the City when you
bring your canines out to recreate. All dogs in the park are required to be on a
leash at all times. Patrons are asked to
pick up after their dogs to make sure the parks
stay clean for everyone.
Five Year Park Plan
In five years, how do you visualize your
parks and what amenities do you want to see in the
Do you want several splash pads,
more walking trails, better sports facilities?
Does the Yukon Community Center meet the needs of the community? What
does it need to meet its mission or is it inadequate?
Does the Jackie Cooper Gym need a game room and weight room? These questions are being asked of citizens
of Yukon. We want to hear from YOU!
Yukonites are asked to take a vested
interest in their beautiful parks and
give the City suggestions for the future.
