Bloomington’s Parks And Rec Report High Participation Despite Heat

Bloomington Parks and Recreation director Mick Renneisen says participation in parks events is up, despite the high heat. He says the department does not have cancellation requirements in cases of extreme heat. He says events at Parks and Rec facilities may be canceled due to rainy conditions, but no guidelines exist for hot weather cancellations. Renneisen says most games, such as ones played in the city’s softball league, are scheduled in the evening.

Renneisen says it’s too early to tell what kind of economic impact the heat will have on the Parks and Rec budget. He says while extra water costs may go up, money may be saved in energy and other expenditures.
