The Boston Flower & Garden Show will return to the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston with the theme “Superheroes of the Garden”.  You’ve probably heard of Comic-Con, the huge celebration of comic books, video games and popular culture.  This year’s Flower Show will be a veritable Horti-Con, honoring the crusaders, innovative tools and legendary plants helping to make us all champions in the battle for garden supremacy! KPRD will be going on Thursday, March 23rd leaving the recreation center at 8AM! Tickets are on sale for $40 per ticket. This includes your transportation and admission into the show.

The Special Olympics Unified Sports Basketball Assessment games are coming to Keene on Saturday, March 11. Over 40 teams are invading the Monadnock area to demonstrate their skills, courage and joy. These teams and athletes have been practicing for months and will be ready to play preliminary games before heading to Derry in early April for the State Tournament. 

With 5 courts of action all day, I am looking for officials to donate their time and help provide a quality sports environment for the athletes. 

Are you willing to assist and officiate? The game formats will be as such:

2 – 16 minute halves – stop time last 4 minutes

4 – 30 second time outs (2 per half)

The games will begin at 9:00 on 6 courts and run until 12:00. Lunch will be provided and games resume at 1:00 and finished between 3:30 and 4:00. 

I need your assistance in making this event a success. Call me at 357-9829 or send an email to mspaulding@ci.keene.nh.us.  Please commit to the day.

Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated!

Are the seed catalogs calling your name? City of Keene Parks and Recreation Department is offering space in our Community Gardens for the 2017 growing season.

You can save your spot for this coming season by spotting in at the office. Please be aware of the growing season dates listed below. KPRD will not be out in gardens any earlier.

At the rear of Monadnock View Cemetery, adjacent to Cedarcrest, is a plot of land that KPRD makes available as garden space for the public.  For a nominal fee, folks can rent the space for the season and grow their own veggies!  There is an agreement form to fill out prior to planting, so stop by the Recreation Center at 312 Washington Street to reserve your space.
