Chester County Parks + Preservation announces schedules and opens registration for its holiday-themed and winter programs. Whether you are looking for outdoor fun for kids around the holidays or events to enjoy all season long to beat the winter blues, we have something for you!
Chester County’s seven parks and three trails are popular destinations throughout the year, attracting nearly 1.5 million visitors annually. Chester County Parks + Preservation Park Rangers have created unique ways for residents of all ages to enjoy the trails and parks this winter.
Registration is now open for everything from a holiday luminaire hike, star gazing and disc golf weekends, to winter wilderness hikes, educational programs about maple syrup, and more. Remember to keep an eye out for the pop-up surprise sledding program, too! Many of these programs fill up quickly. To register for any of the scheduled programs, visit www.chesco.org/parkprograms.
“We are excited to host a wide variety of holiday and winter events, which wouldn’t be possible without our dedicated park rangers. They put a great deal of effort and time into developing and hosting these programs,” said Dave Stauffer, director of Chester County Parks + Preservation. “We look forward to continuing to connect people with our County’s beautiful natural resources even in the cold winter months.”
