About the program

Every summer, ParkARTS hosts free events in the City's parks. You can:

  • paint your favorite park landscapes in watercolor
  • learn how best to photograph local wildlife
  • improve your crafting skills, and
  • take part in much more.

Over the summer, parks are also transformed into music venues where Latin groups, swing bands, and full orchestras share the stage. Puppet shows are sure to delight and movie nights take place every week.
