We work very diligently at the Long Lake Parks and Recreation department bringing events to the people year round. We sometimes have so much going on between trivia, kids events, planning concerts, craft fairs, hiking expeditions, grooming snowmobile trails and organizing trips that sometimes we forget to promote some of the great ways we communicate to the people on social media. We’ve compiled a list of links, so you can stay connected with our social media outlets and what we have going on in our community.
