Macon Bibb County Residents and Visitors,

As the Director of Macon Bibb Parks and Recreation, I have challenged my staff to be a positive influence in the lives of our community. All of our sites have taken the “Commit to Health” pledge through the National Recreation and Park Association. This includes but is not limited to promoting healthy physical activity at all of our locations and providing healthier snacks for participants. We are very passionate about nutrition education and encouraging physical activity. The nutrition education component we are adding to our youth programs will ensure that children and their parents are well equipped to prepare and select healthier foods. We must exercise our due diligence by providing participants with opportunities to access healthier foods, engage in physical activity and making lifestyle changes. Our mission here at Macon Bibb Parks & Recreation is “to build healthy communities through people, parks and programs”. Nutrition education and resources that we offer will not only assist us in completing our mission, but will allow us to create and support lifestyle changes for our citizens. Please feel free to click the links below for resources or contact Dominique Lewis, Recreation Programmer, (dlewis@maconbibb.us/478-621-6281) for additional nutrition education assistance.
