GARY “GRIZ” DRYLIE AWARDED
THE CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF RECREATION AND PARK DISTRICTS (CARPD) OUTSTANDING VOLUNTEER - AWARD OF DISTINCTION
AND
THE CALIFORNIA PARK AND RECREATION SOCIETY (CPRS)
CHAMPION OF THE COMMUNITY AWARD

The Hesperia Recreation and Park District is happy to announce that Hesperia Area Recreation District Foundation Chair Board Member, Gary “Griz” Drylie, has been awarded for his outstanding work as a volunteer in our community.  He was recently recognized by the California Park and Recreation Society (CPRS) with the Champion of the Community Award.  Next week, the California Association of Recreation and Park Districts (CARPD) will be recognizing him at their annual conference in Lake Tahoe as its Outstanding Volunteer – Award of Distinction winner.

Griz Drylie has been an active and valuable volunteer in the community of Hesperia, with his work mainly focused around the Harrison Exhibit Center, 16367 Main Street, (becoming known as the Hesperia Museum), and his related outreach projects.  His efforts for the preservation of Hesperia’s rich history guarantee a connection between future generations and the past.  His dedication to the community is evident in the various programs and activities that he provides.

Griz has been serving on the Hesperia Area Recreation District (HARD) Foundation since February 2006.  He specifically has spearheaded programs centered on the history of Hesperia and the surrounding community.  His extensive knowledge of history has made all of the following programs possible: “Then and Now” postcards with photos of local historical sites in the past and present, “Hesperia Hall of Fame” honoring significant Hesperians who’ve made the community a better place for all, “Route 66, Old Government Road, and National Old Trails Road” education, the addition of the Stratton House to the Hesperia Historical Marker Tour, Scale Models, a Morse Code machine for a more interactive experience, meetings with school administrators, presentations to schools and the District’s Kids Kamp, and more.  As a dedicated volunteer, Griz is the docent at the Harrison Exhibit Center which provides a glance into Hesperia’s past for all different kinds of patrons.  Local historical societies, school groups, and citizens have all benefited from the amazing history lessons that Griz has provided.  On top of that, Griz has pursued grants for museum restoration, museum displays, and historical preservation. Griz has also recently led an effort to submit a grant request to the California Cultural and Historical Endowment for over $85,000 for museum capital improvements and to enhance display features at the Harrison Museum.

Griz not only runs the physical side of Harrison Exhibit Center but also the virtual side with the “Hesperia’s Historic Preservation Group” on social media.  The social media page is full of historical photos and videos that everyone can enjoy.  He goes the extra mile by also live streaming from the museum and giving the community one-of-a-kind history lessons.

His commitment to the preservation of Hesperia’s history is contagious and deeply appreciated.  He energetically brings Hesperia’s distant past to life.  For his dedication to the community, the Hesperia Recreation and Park District nominated Gary “Griz” Drylie for these awards and expresses our support and gratitude for his contributions.

LIME STREET PARK PLAYGROUND RIBBON CUTTING

“Play is the highest form of research.” - Albert Einstein.

Join us at Lime Street Park on Thursday, May 5th to celebrate the installation of the brand new playground!  The Ribbon Cutting will take place at 5:00 p.m. at 16292 Lime Street, Hesperia. 

Fully replaced, the new Lime Street Park Playground is extra-ordinary with new features such as the Inclusive Merry Go Round, and ADA access to the large play structure.  An adaptive swing is also installed on the exciting new swing set!

Our children deserve these spaces, as does the entire community since playgrounds only help to make brighter futures for all who enjoy them.

Play is not all fun and games; it has taught us all, and continues to teach.  Through play we learn to interact with others, and develop lifelong skills.  Playgrounds help children develop motor, cognitive, emotional, social, and communication skills naturally. 

So come crawl up the new Centipede Climber, or steer the ship away from pirates, and look for sharks through the telescope!  Slide down the neck of a dragon (okay, it’s a twisty slide), then save a princess from a castle! 

If you can’t make it to the Ribbon Cutting, the Hesperia Recreation and Park District invites you to stop by soon to give it a whirl! 

General Manager, Nicolas Chavez, expresses, “District staff is exploring additional playground renovations District-wide.  These improvements will be budgeted for in the upcoming fiscal year.”  For more information and to view all of our parks and facilities, visit HesperiaParks.com.

HESPERIA RECREATION AND PARK DISTRICT
AWARDED GRANT FUNDING

The Hesperia Recreation and Park District is proud to announce that we have recently been awarded both the CA Department of Parks and Recreation Proposition 68 Grant and the CA Department of Justice Tobacco Grant.  This is fantastic news for both the additional amenities that this grant funding will bring and the safety and security of Hesperia parks and facilities.

The CA DPR Proposition Grant 68 will provide funding to the tune of 4.4 million dollars.  We’d like to thank the Hesperia community for their participation and input at community meetings that will bring improvements and upgrades to Lime Street Park. 

            This competitive grant program provides funding to local government agencies to support the rehabilitation, creation, and improvement of local parks, and to address deficiencies in neighborhoods lacking access to outdoor recreation facilities. 

            Hesperia Recreation and Park District’s project proposal revolved around major improvements to Lime Street Park including two additional ballfields, a walking trail with outdoor fitness equipment, a proposed spray ground, community plaza, public art, and volleyball court, along with additional parking on the west side of the park.  Final project plans will be shared with the community as construction grows near.

            The District also applied for and was awarded the DOJ Tobacco Grant for the 2021-23 funding cycle and will receive $272,160 over a two-year period.  This will provide funding for an additional full time Park Ranger position.

            In our proposal, HRPD expressed the goal of, “a multi-pronged approach to reduce illegal tobacco use by minors within the District.  The project will prevent illicit tobacco use by funding HRPD Park Ranger operations, including enforcement as well as promote public education of recently passed state and local ordinances regarding vaping and tobacco use.”

            We greatly look forward to bringing these new amenities for patrons to utilize and enhancing the Park Ranger program to further our mission to make life better and enrich the quality of life for our community.

HESPERIA RECREATION AND PARK DISTRICT
IMPROVEMENTS AND HAPPENINGS

There’s a LOT going on here at Hesperia Parks!  We’re happy to share that programs, classes, maintenance, and events are in full swing.  To name a few, we’ve re-opened our facilities for regular programming and rentals including:  Epicentre, Percy Bakker Community Center, Lime Street Park Community Center, Power Play Center, John Swisher Community Center, Timberlane Community Center, and the Rick Novack Community Center.

Community events are back!  The month of July featured Movies in the Park every weekend, and August showcased concerts every Friday night at Hesperia Civic Plaza Park.  Thank you to all who made it out, it was a blast!  You don’t want to miss this year’s Hesperia Days on September 18th and 19th, held throughout Hesperia.  Visit our website for the full line-up of activities to get involved in.  Also lined up is the Women and Kids Expo on September 25th, Hot Rod Halloween on October 30th, and the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on December 2nd, all held at Hesperia Civic Plaza Park.

Contract Classes are up and running including a couple of new ones:  Acting/Improvisation and Roller Skating.  Summer Kids Kamp has wrapped up and the After School Activities Program is running at Hesperia elementary schools for school children in grades one through six.  Facility Rentals are once again available at all of our facilities for your next event.  We also have Field and Picnic Rentals.

Sports are also back!  Fall Flag Football and Fall Girls Volleyball leagues start in September.  Adult softball continues to be a community favorite with games and practices held at Lime Street Park and Hesperia Community Park.

HARD Foundation President, Griz Drylie, has been hard at work with the recently formed Hesperia Historical Preservation Committee.  Their monthly meetings are open to the public, where they discuss programs and activities revolving around Hesperia’s rich history, and fundraising efforts.

Our Park Ranger program has recently expanded with the new added Volunteer Park Rangers.  A full-time Park Ranger position was created to better protect and serve our community, parks, and facilities.

Hesperia Lake Park has a new sign with our updated logo featuring a catfish on one side and trout on the other.    Improvements have been made to the Hesperia Lake well that feeds the soccer fields and memorial trees (thank you for your patience through that process!).  We spread new road base to smooth the ingress and egress roads, and fishing and camping continues with biweekly stockings and tagged fish.

At Lime Street Park, we’ve given the program building a fresh coat of paint, repaired the turf, and reroofed all the dugouts.  Coming up:  keep your eye out for a new playground structure and a splash pad!  A brand new basketball hoop at Epicentre teen center has been installed, we repainted the interior, installed new column padding, and a new roof.  If you’ve visited Power Play Center lately to skate or take a class, you may have noticed repairs done to the parking lot.  Upcoming improvements for the interior are in planning stages.  The parking lot at the Park Center commercial property was also resealed and repainted.   Malibu Park got a fresh coat of paint on the fence, and the picnic shelter was re-stained.  Tree trimming was done at Lime Street Park, Live Oak Park, and Hesperia Lake Park to help preserve the health, safety, and beauty of the canopies.
