Atlantic Area Chamber Ambassadors Visit Schildberg Rec Area

The Atlantic Chamber Ambassadors were hosted by Atlantic Parks and Recreation on Thursday, June 25. The Ambassador’s viewed a new bath house that was constructed last year and officially opened this spring. The bath house also has a concession stand area that can be rented out for parties, family reunions, etc. A playground was also built last fall that is now available for use. Both projects were built with funds from a grant. Bryant Rasmussen, Parks and Rec Director, stated new entry signage has been placed at the parks using signage found from 30 years ago that was refurbished. The edible, public gardens are beginning to produce product. Bryant mentioned they have implemented a new biking program for community members and visitors to utilize. They currently have nine bikes that can be rented to use around town. Their plans for the rest of the year are to catch up on maintenance and implement more native grasses and wildlife areas at their parks.
