FREE ADMISSION TO EAGLE POINT PARK MAY 21ST
The City of Dubuque has joined communities across the country in proclaiming Saturday, May 21, 2016 as “Kids to Parks Day.” The Leisure Services Department encourages families to be active and do something outdoors in one of the many free parks in the City or Dubuque County on that day. In acknowledgement of the occasion, the Dubuque Park and Recreation Commission voted February 9 to waive the vehicle entrance/admission fee to Eagle Point Park all day on Saturday, May 21. Eagle Point is open from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Saturdays.
