BREC has utilized its resources to provide a supportive, resourceful and abundant environment for the public. The reopening of Greenwood Park has removed potential barriers for people of all walks of life to engage in world-class recreation and leisure activities.

Exposure is one of the keys to successful life development. The recreational, leisure offerings at Greenwood Park can enhance serious leisure development for this life journey.

I urge teachers, youth groups, seniors and families to utilize the resources at Greenwood Park to help establish and maintain the leisure and education connection.

As Plato said, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” Congratulations, BREC, for a job well done.
