Join us for Picnic in the Park

We are very excited to announce Picnic in the Park on April 14th from 3-5 p.m at our neighborhood park on the campus of Barton Hills Elementary School.

This is an informal gathering for all of the neighborhood. Super kid friendly and hoping for excellent weather, we will hear the Barton Hills School Choir, see old friends and meet new ones.

We are particularly interested in seeing kids and parents who would typically be at the July 4th parade attend our Party in the Park because we want to do a little planning for the parade while we are all mingling. But do not fret, there will be no formal announcements, no loud speakers or amps, just folks from the ‘hood enjoying springtime. We look forward to seeing you there!
