West Fargo Park District recreation manager Lance Belisle has seen summer activities in the park district grow exponentially the past few years. And that's great, he says, but that doesn't mean it doesn't come with challenges.
This summer specifically, the park district has over 20 sports, activities and programs available to local youth. That includes an increase of over 100 kids in baseball/T-ball and softball, which means over 1,100 kids are now involved in baseball/T-ball. Well over one hundred kids are in basketball, creative arts which includes art, music, sewing and theater, science/technology programs which include science classes, SMART lab, video game design, drones, cooking and day camps, tennis, track, volleyball and sports samplers, not to mention even more activities and sports available.
