On Saturday, February 22, at 10 am, the park will celebrate George Washington’s birthday. Children of all ages are invited to hear tales of Washington’s childhood, as well as sing and dance in honor of the occasion.

“There’s still lots to do at the park, even during the winter,” said Park Ranger Kelly Roman, “And if you’re going to get out of the house to have fun, why not learn something new?”
