Quincy Park District seeing increase in attendance because of nice weather

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Nice weather has helped boost attendance for the Quincy Park District.

Officials say they've seen more people coming to the pools and the batting cages this year than last.

In fact, officials say the up tick in attendance has lead to a $2,000 increase in park district revenue, and they are thanking the recent streak of good weather for it.

"It's warmed up so it's a little warmer out we don't have rain every other day and those types things and it's sunny. People are just anxious to get out especially the way April and May was, it was so cold and dreary," said Mike Bruns, Director of Program Services for the Park District.

Bruns also credits lowering the cost for seasonal pool passes from $65 to $40 for the attendance increase as well.
