  • LBJ Community Center now has Accessible Pathways!

    Thanks to the support of Park & Recreation District #1, the Laurel B. Johnson Community Center now has accessible pathways connecting the rear patio to the gazebo, wooden picnic table, parking lot, fire pit area and the new sport court. The path also eases the transition on & off the cement patio. This new improvement will enhance the mobility of everyone using the Center. A special word of thanks to Colleen & Roland Faragher-Horwell for working with Cathy Bohman on the pathway design. Thank you to Derek Franson Trucking & Excavating for a great job installing the pathway.  Enjoy!



  • New Sport Court Is Here!
    Whoopee Folks, the sport court and exercise station at the Coyle Community Center are completed (see photos below). The adjustable basketball hoop is up and the net can be easily set for pickle ball (32 inches) or badminton (60 inches). There is a bin in the shed that contains 4 pickle ball rackets and balls, 4 badminton rackets and shuttlecocks, a lightweight basketball, a volley ball and a kiddie soccer ball and two goals. PLEASE RETURN THESE ITEMS TO THE BIN AND LATCH THE SHED DOOR WHEN YOU ARE FINISHED. The exercise station contains instruction signs for a variety of exercises appropriate for the equipment. Enjoy the sport court and exercise station at your own risk. Please be careful.Thanks to the following Toandos volunteers for their work in completion of the facilities: Cathy and HR Bohman, Wendy and Rob Stafford, Dennis Schmitt, Richard Hull, Gary Emer and Jackie Gardner. Special heroes were Richard Hull and Dennis Schmitt for their installation of the split rail fencing and Cathy and HR Bohman for the installation of the exercise station.This very exciting project will provide both young and old opportunities for free outdoor exercise and entertainment. We wish to thank Jefferson Healthcare and Jefferson County Parks and Recreation District 1 for their financial support.
