Jumping from plays to parks… Back in early May, Granite Bay held the grand opening of the Franklin School Community Park. So, if you’re looking for a place to spend your day outside and happen to be in the area, it’s a great place. The park is 4.5 acres and features a synthetic turf baseball diamond/soccer field, a concrete trail, extensive landscaping, and a soon-to-be-finished group picnic pavilion. The park is located at 70540 Franklin School Road, off Laird.
Some people prefer indoor recreation to beat the heat. What better way to do this than to join a book club or head to the local library? Roseville has three to choose from: the Martha Riley Community Library, the Downtown Library, and the Maidu Library. The Martha Riley Community Library features a Non-Fiction Book Club and a Fantasy Book Club, while the Maidu Library features a Mystery Book Club and a General Book Club. Meeting times and dates can be found online at roseville.ca.us/library/adult_programs.asp
