Recreational amenities such as parks, recreation centers, special events, ice rinks, golf courses, museums and concerts abound in NWCCOG’s Region. It is these recreational facilities and opportunities that contribute to the region’s high quality of life. There are many private purveyors of opportunities from skiing to whitewater rafting to classical concerts. 

Municipalities have not just left recreation to the private industries and Mother Nature. Most communities have recognized how important subsidized recreational opportunities are to the quality of life in the area.
