Brainerd Parks and Recreation has cancelled summer youth activities effective July 7, 2020.  The Park Board made its decision upon reviewing the Governor's Executive Order 20-74 and the Minnesota Health Department and Center for Disease Control guidelines for youth activities. The Board also discussed that activities normally end in July, and it is too late in the season to start up programs. REFUNDS HAVE BEEN PROCESSED for all youth registration fees received in 2020.  Contact the office at 218-828-2320 if you have not received a check.  Looking for activity ideas?  Check out the Virtual Recreation link to the left for great family activities!
