Join Us...

While the older children are in school, parents and their younger kids are invited to have fun at Rocksprings Park with two special August programs.
“Mini Olympics” will bring out the Olympian in even the youngest competitor.  This program is set for Thursday, August 11 from 10 – 11:30 AM.  While the world concentrates on the Olympics, we will have our own Olympic-themed games, learn about elite athletes, and maybe even win a medal or two.

“Park Pals” is scheduled for Tuesday, August 23 from 10 – 11:30 AM.  Participants will celebrate “National Parks Day” with a park theme including a park craft, outdoor games, and a playground challenge.

Both programs are for ages 3-5.  The program fee is $5 per child for ACC residents and $7.50 per child for non-ACC residents.  Online registration is required.
