Parks & Recreation Launches Survey
Parks & Recreation Looking for Feedback on Recreation Programs
Every year, the Borough of Carlisle’s Parks and Recreation Department offers a wide range of recreation programs that provide safe and fun activities for people of all ages. Recreation opportunities include, but are not limited to, tumbling and yoga programs for preschoolers, Summer Day Camp and dance classes for youth, and fitness and leisure learning classes for adults. The Department also offers sports programs and lessons in lacrosse, tennis, basketball, volleyball, fencing, and pickleball. Parks and Recreation also hosts special events such as the Summer Artist Series and the annual Halloween Parade.
To ensure their recreation offerings continue to meet the needs of the entire Carlisle Borough community, the Parks and Recreation Department is looking for ideas and feedback from the community. On Monday, March 21, 2022, a survey will launch on Engage Carlisle, the Borough’s citizen engagement platform. The brief survey asks participants to rate their satisfaction level with the recreation activities and programs, as well as offer thoughts on what additional programs they would like to see. The survey is not just for those who have taken part in recreation programs in the past. The Parks and Recreation Department wants to hear from those who have not participated to find out what type of offerings would encourage them to participate and to examine any barriers to participation that may currently exist.
“We want to know if the recreation programs offered by Carlisle Parks and Recreation meets the needs of our community,” said Parks and Recreation Director Andrea Crouse. “Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and let us know how we are doing and how we may be able to help to accommodate your recreational programming needs.” Crouse also stated that the department plans to issue additional surveys focusing on specific parks and facilities later this year.
The survey is open until June 30, 2022. The survey results will then be evaluated and considered for future recreation programs starting in fall of 2022. To take the survey, visit www.carlislepa.org/engage. If you have not previously registered on Engage Carlisle, you will need to create an account by clicking on “Sign Up” at the top right corner.
