Burlington County Parks have announced a busy schedule of events and programs for all ages.
“Summer is an exciting time of year to visit a Burlington County park, museum or gallery, and we’re pleased that so many fun events are planned,” said Allison Eckel, Burlington County Commissioner, Department of Natural Resources Conservation Liaison and parks. “Residents can attend an outdoor movie theater or concert, learn the basics of fly fishing, discuss history with a new book club, taste fine Italian cheeses, or test their knowledge of America’s Founding Fathers and national parks. Regardless of age or interest, there is sure to be a Parks program or event that is perfect.”
