Director’s Notes

Ready or not – the year 2020 is here!   20/20 is considered perfect vision so the year 2020 is the perfect time to set your sights on enjoying life a little more! Whether you join a program that sparks a new hobby, take a bus trip somewhere new or attend one of our special events, you are guaranteed to enjoy yourself!

This season we have some great new programs for kids, adults and families. Gardening classes, art programs, cooking classes and sports are just some of the types of programs we are offering. The ever-popular Family Nature Series is back but don’t let the name fool you – everyone is welcome to attend these programs – not just families.

In addition to these programs we have three bus trips schedule for our Winter/Spring season. Join us for our trips to the 104th PA Farm Show in January and the 191st Philadelphia Flower Show in March. These events are part of our state’s history and should not be missed! New this spring is a trip to Peddler’s Village for a Murder Mystery Luncheon. Join us and help solve the mystery!

The Winter/Spring season hosts five special events within six weeks. It all starts with the Daddy/Daughter Dance on March 27th. Tickets go on sale January 2nd, 2020. The annual Easter Egg Hunt is scheduled for April 8th at Shiloh Hills Park – don’t forget to bring your basket! The Youth and Senior Trout Rodeos will be held at Cacoosing Meadows Park on April 18th and 24th respectively. You don’t have to be an experienced angler to enjoy these fishing events. During the Youth Rodeo bait will be available for purchase and there are plenty of experienced anglers willing to help! The annual Golf Tournament rounds out the event season on May 8th.

The Department is once again offering discounted tickets to several area ski resorts. Check out the great savings at  Pavilion reservation requests for the 2020 season will be accepted beginning at 8:00 am on January 15th, 2020.

Although the weather is getting colder and the flowers are dying off, that is no excuse to lock yourself away inside for the next several months. Take some time to enjoy a walk in one of our fifteen parks – it will be good for your body and your soul!

We look forward to seeing you in our parks and programs!
