Parks After Dark

PAD Graphic 2018 1 Parks After Dark is returning this summer starting June 14, 2018 at 33 parks countywide. The program revitalizes parks in neighborhoods with high crime rates and economic hardship into vibrant community centers. Participating county parks are kept open during summer evening hours when crime rates are the highest and youth have fewer social and recreational opportunities, providing a variety of free recreational and physical activities for community members of all ages.

Join us between June 14, 2018 – August 4, 2018 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
