By Faith Mannix | June 2011

GLENS FALLS, NY - Glens Falls is ready to make their city parks better.  After partnering with the Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work and Play program, the city is making plans to revitalize their parks, and wants YOUR opinion!

Creating Healthy Places is put on by the Glens Falls Hospital and aims to prevent and reduce obesity, diabetes, and chronic diseases in both children and adults.  The program is funded by the New York State Department of Health. Creating Healthy Place

Creating Healthy Places goes beyond the traditional methods of just focusing on proper exercise and nutrition.  It works to create opportunities for people to access healthy food.  The program also wants to provide safe, convenient places to get exercise, hence the revitalization of the city parks.

You can take the survey online or you can obtain a paper copy at the following locations: the Crandall Library, the Glens Falls Park field houses, the Glens Falls Hospital, and all of the Glens Falls public elementary schools.

So have your opinions heard and help the city improve it's public parks!
