Community Outreach

Random Acts of Fitness

Get ready! We're coming to a neighborhood near your! Watch out for our super-summer special agents as we "bust" families, friends and neighbors of all ages for their efforts to get outside and be active and healthy. We'll reward those showing a healthy lifefstyle...playing catch, riding a bike, walking the dog, mowing the lawn...with a gift bag of swag and G.O. (Get Outdoors) t-shirts. We'll be looking for our "cardio criminals" from May-October. We will also be posting participants on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter! 

Check out some of our "busts" from this summer!
 City staff will be identifying outstanding yards of Inver Grove Heights whose lawn exemplifies creativity, neatness, beauty and use of natural resources. As staff select a winner, a sign will be placed in their front yard for one week to proclaim their lawn as " Inver Grove Heights Lawn of the Week." Winners will be honored at a Parks and Recreation Commission meeting in the fall as well as receive a certificate of achievement and prize.

The City will consider nominations and make the final decision. If you have a lawn you would like to suggest please send an email to Jen Graham at
