Mammoth Lakes Recreation This Week




Recreation for All – We Surpassed Our Fundraising Goal!

WOW! We are extremely grateful for ALL of you who donated, shared or spread the word about the Tony Colasardo Scholarship Fund. We surpassed our goal of $20,000 by raising over $25,000! Over $9,000 was raised through Go Fund Me that was matched by the Colasardo family ($9,291). Generous contributions from Footloose Sports and Volunteer Eastern Sierra also contributed to this amazing fundraising effort. The Colasardo family thanks ALL of you from the bottom of their hearts. These are often life changing events so thank you once again for keeping Tony’s dream alive!

The Tony Colasardo Scholarship Fund provides full or partial scholarships for the many popular camps and recreation programs offered by the Parks and Recreation Department. Tony Colasardo was a long-time Recreation Commissioner who was a passionate advocate for inclusion and social equity and believed that every child regardless of income level, ability, race or gender should have access to the benefits of parks and recreation.

Plaza Suite Now Playing at the Edison Theatre!

The Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre presents Plaza Suite now playing through February 19, 2023 (Thurs – Sat @ 7pm Sun @4pm) at the Edison Theatre – 100 College Parkway. Hilarity abounds in this portrait of three couples successively occupying a suite at the Plaza. A suburban couple take the suite while their house is being painted and it turns out to be the one in which they honeymooned 23 (or was it 24?) years before and was yesterday the anniversary, or is it today? This wry tale of marriage in tatters is followed by the exploits of a Hollywood producer who, after three marriages, is looking for fresh fields. He calls a childhood sweetheart, now a suburban housewife, for a little sexual diversion. Over the years she has idolized him from afar and is now more than the match he bargained for. The last couple is a mother and father fighting about the best way to get their daughter out of the bathroom and down to the ballroom where guests await her or as Mother yells, “I want you to come out of that bathroom and get married!”

Please Leash Your Dog!

The Mammoth Lakes Police Department is issuing citations to all owners with dogs off-leash at Shady Rest Park and throughout Town after issuing only warnings for the last 2 years. It is unlawful for any dog owner to allow their dog to run at large within the Town of Mammoth Lakes Municipal Boundary. The Eastern Sierra offers an incredible outdoor playground for dog owners to play and walk with your dog(s) off-leash. The Town is moving forward with plans for a dog park with construction expected to commence in the fall of 2023. Thank you for your commitment in keeping Mammoth Lakes safe and beautiful for all to enjoy! Learn more about Dog Resources, Licensing, Education and Enforcement.

In the Town of Mammoth Lakes, beyond the Shady Rest “slow zone” around the softball fields, geothermal pipelines that run above ground are now marked with yellow/black/red bamboo poles about 20 feet apart. Please use caution riding in this area by slowing down and staying on the groomed trail when you are within a quarter mile of the parking lot. Please do not ride your snowmobile over these pipelines. This is a temporary solution while we work to install more appropriate signage and highly visible markings. Thank you for being safe on your snowmobile! Need a map? Download it on our snowmobiling page either in PDF or georeferenced on Avenza for free.
