Come to New Quarter Park this Weekend
Fall is officially here and the weather has begun to finally cool down! With this transition to a new season, here are a couple of annual changes to keep in mind:
- Our kayak rentals are now closed until April 2019.
- Starting the week of Monday, November 5th and continuing until April 2019, New Quarter Park will be on “weekend only” hours of operation. During this time, the park will be opened Friday, 10 a.m. to dusk; Saturday and Sunday, 8 a.m. to dusk.
Remember to sign up children ages 6-12 now for the “The Great Pumpkin Hunt
” on Saturday, October 27 at 5:30 p.m. Check in starts at 4:45 pm to include a bounce house and games. Participants will hike through sections of the park in search of hidden plastic pumpkins filled with prizes. Children will be separated by age groups and receive a bag to collect the plastic pumpkins. An assortment of donated candy will be distributed into each bag. In addition, each registered participant will receive a free glow in the dark necklace. Register by October 15 at www.yorkcounty.gov/parksandrec.
Fee is $5 per child. Please be aware space is limited.Volunteers are Needed!
We are seeking volunteers to help with set up for the pumpkin hunt and to help monitor the trails as the children are on them. In addition, candy donations are being accepted at New Quarter Park and at the Parks and Recreation office at 100 County Drive, Yorktown. Only unopened boxes or bags of individually wrapped candy can be accepted. For more information or to volunteer, call the park office at 757-890-5840 or email Michael Wilcox at Michael.email@example.com
