Parks After Dark

Young man throwing a lay-upParks After Dark is returning this summer starting June 15, 2017 at 23 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 15, 2017 – August 5, 2017 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
