Due to the number of COVID-19 cases on the rise, the City of Lake City Parks and Recreation Department will not sponsor any Fall / Winter sporting events including basketball. We apologize about this but we feel we have to put safety first. As we receive updates, we plan and keep you informed accordingly. Thank you and be safe.
