The Adel City Pool closed for the season on Saturday, August 18th with the annual “Doggy Daze” of summer event. This event allows pet owners to bring their dogs in to the pool for a swim. The dog owners must present an up to date veterinary sheet stating that the animal is current on all immunizations.
Summer Adult Leagues have wrapped up, and we are currently gearing up for our Fall Activities. The first event we have coming up is the annual Punt, Pass, and Kick competition that will be held Saturday, September 22nd at 10:30am at the youth football field in Kinnick-Feller Park.
Registration for the 3rd-6th grade Girls Youth Basketball League is currently open through Friday, October 12th.
The 2012 Adel Park/Rec. Fall and Winter Activity Guide will be coming out next week, and delivered to every household in the Adel, DeSoto, and Minburn communities.
Construction is in full swing on the Adel Family Aquatic Center! The facility is located on S. 15th street in Adel. Sande Construction has been on-site daily, and has been pouring footings for both the bath house and mechanical room. The last few days, the foundation walls of the bath house have been poured. The main pool basin is being dug and is taking shape. We have a progress meeting scheduled for Thursday, August 30th, and I will have more information after that meeting.
Parks: 2 new grills are currently being installed near the shelter at Evans Park.
2 new park benches have been ordered and should be in our hands in the next 3 weeks. The benches will be placed near the playground areas at both Kinnick-Feller and Island park playgrounds. In addition to the grills and benches, 2 brand new bike racks have been ordered to be placed somewhere in the business district of Adel.
Please call Adel Park and Rec at 515-993-4525 if you have any questions.
