Holiday Fun in the Parks!

The holidays are upon us! Take some time out from the hustle and bustle that surrounds us this time of year, and make some memories in the parks. Here are some of the programs we have planned this holiday season:

Christmas Sing-a-Long

Seasonal Senses
Come to Historic Walnford to see, touch, and smell an array of spices used in historical recipes. Many of the aromas we associate with winter holidays were from products imported by Richard Waln in the 18th century. Free! - Saturday & Sunday, December 15 & 16, 1-4pm
