FREE ADMISSION TO EAGLE POINT MAY 19TH
The City of Dubuque has joined communities across the country in proclaiming Saturday, May 19, 2018 as “Kids to Parks Day.” The Leisure Services Department encourages families to be active and do something outdoors in one of the many free parks in the City or Dubuque County on that day. In acknowledgement of the occasion, the Dubuque Park and Recreation Commission voted March 13 to waive the vehicle entrance/admission fee to Eagle Point Park all day on Saturday, May 19. Eagle Point is open from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
NEW HOURS! In an effort to be a more accessible and equitable City department, the Leisure Services Department will be open later so that hopefully more individuals/families will have the opportunity to be served in-person. Starting on Monday, August 28th, our office hours will be from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays. Administrative staff such as Managers and Program Supervisors may be available via phone as early as 8:00 a.m.
The Leisure Services Department, through the Park Division and Recreation Division, provides quality services to the entire community with diverse recreational programs for all ages and an integrated, efficient, and safe system of parks, trails, and recreational facilities.
The department also plans, develops, and maintains the formal public landscaping and natural areas in and around the City, demonstrating an appreciation for the environment.
