hile it seems the end of the
school year was not that long
ago, we are already halfway through
summer. In the summer months some
families go away, but there are many
who stay home. For those who are
here in the summer, please take advantage of all the activities
the City of Parkland has to offer.
While the Fourth of July is a popular holiday, we do not have a
fireworks celebration in Parkland. This year, fireworks can be
a source of anxiety not only for our military veterans, but also
for many of our residents who heard gunfire on February 14. I
would like to remind everyone that fireworks are not only illegal
for consumer use in Florida, but they also cause incredible
stress, anxiety, and fear for many in our community. Please
be considerate of those around you and how they might be
During the summer months when students are often separated
from one another, the City wanted to ensure Stoneman
Douglas students had access to activities that enabled them
to remain connected to one another. This year, above all years,
we held this as a priority.
While we always have summer activities in Parkland, this
season we created more for high school students. Stoneman
Douglas Alumni are utterly amazing. So, in collaboration
with them, high school students can meet at the P-REC in
Pine Trails Park for programs Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and
Thursdays from 3 to 6pm through August 9. Whether it’s
yoga, painting, drumming, or any number of other activities,
Parkland’s high school students will not be bored this summer.
On Fridays we have teen programs from 6 to 9pm at the
P-REC. To determine which summer program is for you, visit
The Resiliency Center at the Parkland Amphitheater will also
be open throughout the summer. Stop by anytime Monday
through Friday, noon to 7pm or on weekends, noon to 5pm.
This is a great resource and we encourage everyone to take
advantage of it.
Parkland continues to have many fun events throughout the
summer including: a Parkchella concert on July 7 from 5:30
to 9:30pm at the Parkland Amphitheater, the Fishing Derby
on July 14 from 8am to 10am at the Pine Trails Park Fishing
Pier, and a Scavenger Hunt and Concert on July 27 from 5 to
9:30pm at Pine Trails Park. Visit the city website at
for information on all summer
programs, events, and activities.
As always, feel free to reach out to me at any time at
with your questions or
comments. I look forward to hearing from you.
