Parks and Recreation Coordinator Shawnee Brown.

Per Capita grants have been approved for both Horsethief and Man O'War Parks.

The CSD staff is looking forward to starting these projects to better our parks for the community. Projects planned for use of the grant include aerating the lake, new tables, benches and playgrounds at both parks.

Parks and Recreation Coordinator, Shawnee Brown, has also been working to give the preschool room at the community center a makeover so it can be used for other children's activities.

The CSD has hired a new Recreation aide, Nicole Liere. She is a Stallion Springs resident and has volunteered for several community events in the past. She is very energetic and involved.

Current Recreation programs include:

Adult basketball has returned on Monday nights from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

Judo is on Mondays and Wednesday from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Yoga with Sonya is Mondays at 5:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 9:30 a.m.

Dance Class with Miss Chris is on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Corral room.

Pickelball continues on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 8 p.m.

The Chief shared his plans to continue Police Information Meetings. These meetings more often, to expand the group and get more volunteers involved in the Leadership of Stallion Springs Neighborhood Watch in 2022. The meetings have been very valuable to our residents, and provided important information regarding crime, crime prevention and safety issues in our Community. The Chief and his officers always have had an "Open Door" policy with our residents and strive to maintain a friendly and helpful/educational approach to any problems.
