Thank you for helping with the playground
A heartfelt thanks from Key Pen Parks to the scores of folks who helped with the playground build this past weekend. We got everything done that was on the agenda with some time to spare! If you drive past Gateway Park, you will see what an incredible playground this is shaping up to be. Thank you, volunteers, for devoting some of your weekend time to making this happen!
Note: An opportunity for volunteers under 18 to help with the installation of engineered wood fiber will be announced at a later date.

Walter, walking and forestry ... oh my!
The second of three Wednesday Walks with Walter activities this summer is coming up on July 26 at Rocky Creek Conservation Area. Join beloved retired forester Walter Briggs and learn some interesting facts about our local forests, the forestry industry, and even tidbits like how you can tell how old a tree is without chipping it down (to count rings)!
Meet in the parking lot at 6:30 pm. This activity is very family friendly, but not stroller friendly. Bring your bug spray and get ready to learn something new while exploring your local park! More information is on the Wednesday Walks with Walter web page.
