Plan a Picnic in the Park

If you have little ones, you can start the summer with a new family routine that will give you something to look forward to each week. Enjoy a family-oriented picnic in the park every Tuesday. The picnics will have live music and themed activities for kids that your little one will adore. This month you can enjoy Flag Day, Selfie Day, Beach Day, or all three. Each picnic is held in Memorial Park from 11:30 to 1:30. You can bring a basket full of goodies or purchase a picnic lunch from local vendors.

Cool Off At Dorris E. Buffet Pool

When the thought of doing anything but lazing in the sun is exhausting, take a dip at Dorris E. Buffet Pool. The pool is open from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. during the week and from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the weekend.
