Upcoming Events

Egg-cellent Easter Extravaganza
April 1, 2017
1:00p - 3:00p
Most people know the rhyme by Beatrix Potter: “Here comes Peter Cottontail, Hoppin' down the bunny trail, Hippity, hoppity, hippity, hoppity, Easter's on its way ” Well, this year, we have decided that everyone one should have a chance to “hop down a bunny trail.” Join us for games and activities scattered around the park in a path that the bunny just might have taken once upon a time. Due to mixed reviews from our event last year, there will be no formal egg hunt, but it is not entirely out of the question that the bunny could have dropped some here or there. This event is not a race, but meant to be more of a walk with occasional challenges where participants could sometimes earn candy or a small toy. Feel free to bring a basket and a camera as we have it on good authority that the Bunny might make an appearance. Stop by any time during the event to participate. Being “on-time” is not required. The event is free, but donations are always appreciated. We hope to see you in April!

Holiday Art in the Park
December 17, 2016
1:00p - 3:00p
Join us for our annual holiday celebration at Chestnut Ridge Park. Last year we painted ornaments, this year we are painting 8x10" canvases to take home and share. We will have multiple holiday designs to choose from, or create your own. Elves will be on hand to assist with the painting, and Santa will drop by for pictures! The event will be held in the building behind the office, but if we experience warm weather like last year, we will move everything outside! Due to the cost of supplies and space, we are capping registration at 30 canvases. PLEASE use the link to sign up. If your plans change and you can no longer attend, please notify us in advance so that we may offer your slot(s) to other children. Thank you. The event is free, but donations are appreciated.

Weary Space Wanderer
August 27, 2016
6:00p - 8:30p
Weary Space Wanderer is spreading improvisational, Appalachian-jam over the made-from-scratch material of singer-songwriter Kevin Hamric. Taking the stories built on an acoustic guitar and shaping them into mind-bending trips of Americana and roots-rock exploration, Weary Space Wanderer is nothing short of an eclectic ride into what modern mountain music can be. Tickets are $5, kids 6 and under get in free
