The days are getting shorter, nights are getting cooler, kids are back in school and the leaves are starting to change – sure signs that the fall season is on its way! Now is the best time of the year to get outdoors and enjoy all that the Parks and Recreation Department has to offer.
The staff has scheduled some very interesting programs this season. From cooking with the kids, to composting, to writing your memoirs, there is a program for you. If you are looking to get away for the day, check out our day trips. These trips are very popular, so be sure to register early!
Our fall season would not be complete without our great special events. Mark your calendars for the Fall Family Festival on Sunday, October 18th at Cacoosing Meadows Park. You won’t want to miss all the vendors, games, mascots and rides! Join us for our Mother-Son Night in November and don’t forget the Visit with Santa!
Once again our staff has joined forces with Blue Marsh Lake and the Berks County Parks and Recreation Department to provide your family with some extraordinary outdoor adventures and programs. This fall we’ll discover bald eagles, harvest herbs, take candlelight tours and learn the art of basket weaving. And don’t forget our outstanding Discount Ticket Program. Tickets for several amusement parks, the zoos and the aquariums will be available through the fall season. Check out the great prices we offer on our Discount Ticket Page..
If your schedule doesn’t allow you to join us for one of our many programs or events, please at least take the time to “Get Outdoors”, breathe some fresh air and take a walk in one of our parks.
We look forward to seeing you in our parks and programs!
