Dunn Parks and Recreation Spring Sports Update

Although it is our goal to provide the community with structured recreational programs, we must put the safety of the community as our top priority.  As of May 14, 2020, Dunn Parks and Recreation will be issuing refunds for all baseball, softball and tee-ball programs scheduled to take place this spring.  Refunds will be distributed to the address provided on the registration via checks to all participants as well as season sponsors
