The Fulton Parks and Recreation Department is planning a new event for the year; the Great Pumpkin Race.
Assistant Parks and Recreation Director Tara O’Shea first got involved in recreation as a teenager when she worked as a lifeguard. It was during this time when she became passionate about water safety.
Legends Rec-Plex opened in June 2021 with a two-week free period for the community. The facility, a 45,000-square-foot multipurpose facility, features a variety of rooms and has the ability to host numerous activities and events. It includes a banquet hall the community can rent for special occasions, courses, and conferences.
Communities across the United States faced a serious question: What can we do to help? The residents of Fulton stepped up.
Legends Rec-Plex has changed its staffing hours for Friday nights. On Fridays, the facility now closes at 7 p.m.
After graduating from Westminster College in 2020, Administrative Assistant Sam Schaefer became one of the first people to work at the newly-opened Legends Rec-Plex.
When the Parks and Recreation Department updated playground equipment at Veterans Park, Parks Supervisor Jason Griffin said the students at nearby Bush Elementary School would ask him excitedly about when it would open.
