The mixed child and adult golf lessons are just one of many programs offered the by Sparks Parks and Rec. Department this spring and summer.
"We try to offer as much as we can to get the kids outside and away from sitting at home, playing video games," said Cindy Brantner a recreation specialist for the city. "We don't want something to last the entire summer. We want a week-long camp or something that's a couple days a week maybe for two or three weeks."
