Parks & Recreation


On behalf of all the staff in our Parks and Recreation Department, I urge you to enjoy the fun that Rock Springs has to offer this summer.  Please take advantage of our wonderful city parks, either by reserving a gathering location or just enjoying the outdoors. We have an exciting new offering this summer - FootGolf at White Mountain Golf Course! This sport is a combination of golf and soccer and playing it is loads of fun! If that's not for you, play a regular round of golf and you’ll find our course to be among the best in the state. 

All summer long, our Civic Center Programs division will be offering events for everyone - from fun runs, to the kids’ fishing derby and Touch-A-Truck, to weekly concerts in the park.  This year we also plan to have live music and more (at the Wataha Pavilion) leading up to the aerial fireworks show on July 4th! 

Have you taken your dog to our dog park recently?  We now have a “small dog” area for your little furry friends. Also, remember to help the children find our wading pools and splash pads on those warm summer days – they are a great place to cool off!  Yes - we will have something for everyone again this year in Rock Springs.  If indoor fun is needed, both the Civic Center and Family Rec Center will be waiting for you daily.

All of these quality areas and offerings provide YOU, the citizen, with numerous QUALITY OF LIFE options that are essential to a healthy lifestyle.  We invite you to come out and participate in a wide range of activities provided by the four divisions that make up RS Parks & Recreation including the Parks Department, the Wataha Recreation Area/White Mountain Golf Course, Civic Center Programs and the Family Rec Center.

If you have a suggestion or need my personal assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.  It is our wish to give the community our very best because we are excited about Parks and Recreation – we take our work and patrons seriously – and we care deeply about our image as a department. Thank you!

Dave Lansang – Director of Parks and Recreation
