Communities come together to showcase progress at two remarkable natural assets in the City of Flint: Flint Park Lake and Thread Lake
Two neighborhood micro-regions in Flint blessed with gorgeous lakes will to come together again this summer to celebrate progress made over the last year to improve public access, amenities and safety around Flint Park Lake and Thread Lake. The second annual “Love You Lakes” community celebrations will kick off the mid-summer stretch with food, fun, friends and neighbors.
The Flint River Watershed Coalition (FRWC), Genesee County Parks, International Academy of Flint and residents from the Flint Park Lake and Thread Lake neighborhoods are hosting two community celebrations for lakes that not only give the neighborhoods their names, but are viewed as tremendous assets by the residents in these areas.
“These lakes are the best kept secrets in Flint, and it’s our goal to give them the recognition that they deserve. It’s a wonderful feeling to come and see people fishing, kayaking, and enjoying their beautiful lakes. It’s what makes our work worthwhile.” said Rebecca Fedewa, FRWC Executive Director.
At each picnic we will enjoy good food, a bounce house, For-Mar Turtle Van, and kayaking on the lakes (tentative). Please contact Sondra Severn at SSevern@FlintRiver.org or 810-767-6490 if you have questions about the events.
