The fall/winter edition of the City of Allentown’s award-winning Adventure Allentown guide is now available.  Mayor Ed Pawlowski announced today that the newest 36 page magazine detailing leisure activities is being distributed city-wide beginning this week.

Adventure Allentown will be sent home with Allentown School District students, and will be available at more than 30 other locations in the city and placed in free outdoor publication racks throughout the park system. City subscribers to The Morning Call will receive a copy of Adventure Allentown in their newspaper this Friday.

“The Adventure Allentown guide is a tremendous resource for our residents and visitors,” said Director of Parks and Recreation Lindsay Taylor.  “I encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the wide variety of recreational opportunities in our fabulous park system this fall and winter.”

The Adventure Allentown guide contains information on special events, youth and adult programs; city parks and golf; music and theater; the library and museums; healthy living and other useful material for city park and recreation services.  The guide also includes a list of park amenities, recent and upcoming park improvements, event schedules and a comprehensive list of community agencies dedicated to youth, adults and senior citizens.

“I urge everyone to obtain a copy of Adventure Allentown and keep it handy,” said Pawlowski.  “It is the one stop guide for city residents and visitors to learn about programs that emphasize our commitment to fitness, healthy lifestyles, the arts, and economic vitality through events that capitalize on the city’s greatest assets.  I am especially proud to see the publication consistently garner awards for eight years now.”
