Thank you for a great 2016 Pensacola!

As we reflect on the past year's memories made through parks and programs, we are so grateful to have each and every one of you to share our great park system with and to continue offering you great service year after year.

New Language Classes at Fricker Resource Center

Have you ever wanted to learn a new language? Bilingualism (the ability to speak or use two languages) boosts brain power. Now Fricker Resource Center is offering two language courses so you can find out how powerful a boost knowing two or more languages can be. The best part is they are both offered for free.  

Parlez-vous Francais? Join instructor Francois Vieux from Lake Charlene for weekly French lessons at the Fricker Center. These classes are held each Monday afternoon from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.

American Sign Language classes are held on Wednesday afternoons from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Added benefits of learning sign language are the ability to communicate in a unique and graceful or expressive way; improved spelling; and picking up a new skill that can make a difference in many public service professions. 

Happy Holidays
