Random Acts of Fitness


We're coming to a neighborhood near you! Watch out for our super-summer special agents as we "bust" familes, friends and neighbors of all ages for their efforts to get outside and be active and healthy.  We'll reward those showing a healthy lifestyle with gift bag of swag and our G.O. (Get Outdoors) t-shirts.  We'll be looking for our cardio criminals from May-October and will be posting your Random Acts of Fitness on the City website and Facebook page

Lawn of the Week
Get your mower and green thumb ready!  City staff will be identifying outstanding yards of Inver Grove Heights residents whose lawn exemplify creativity, neatness and beauty.  As staff find a "winner", a sign will be placed in their front yard for one week.  Recipients will receive a certificate of achievement and a prize.

The City will consider "nominations" and make a final decision on the Lawn of the Week awards.  If you have a lawn you would like to suggest, please send an email to Jen Graham
