As summer winds down in Moose Jaw, the parks and recreation department is changing its schedules and preparing for autumn.
Jasmine Jackman, city recreation program supervisor, told the Times-Herald the summer playground programming ended last week and the city is preparing to release its annual fall recreation guide, which will be distributed Aug. 30 with the Sunday Times.
Jackman said the guide will also be available on the city website at www.moosejaw.ca. The guide includes a variety of fall and winter programs offered through the city - typically about 70 in all.
"So there's lots going on," she said, adding the guide also includes contact information for other community organizations that offer fall and winter recreation programming.
Currently, there is ice at the Civic Centre and Moose Javians can find public skating times in the guide. The other indoor community rinks will have ice installed by Oct. 1.
Jackman, who is also the local torch run committee chairwoman, said before summer is through, residents can celebrate the Olympic torch passing through the city.
