Eagle Creek Park

Dear All,

Hopefully some of you were able to go out to the park this past weekend and watch part of the NCAA Women’s Rowing Championships.  They were really quite exciting to watch, especially as many times positions changed the closer they came to the finish line.  The colleges that these young ladies represented came from the east coast to the west coast and everything in between.  One young lady on the IU Rowing Team lives in our District 6.  All the participants did a terrific job and can be very proud.

There are always a lot of exciting activities going on at Eagle Creek Park, and the month of June will be no exception.  Check out the attached calendar and see what is happening.  Have children or grandchildren?  Read through the descriptions of many of the programs, as some are geared toward school aged (and even younger) and many for families.  What a terrific way to help further their education about nature and the out-of-doors as well as having a lot of fun as they participate!  These type of experiences can help them when they go back to school in the fall as well.

Take note that on June 8th there will be no park access until 11 a.m. due to the  Sprint Triathlon.  That is the only day this month that the park will not be on regular schedule.  The gate closing time will be at 9:30 this month.

The Eagle Creek Park Concerts Schedule is also attached.  These are held every Wednesday evening at 6:30 and are free with your park admission.  They alternate between “Jazz on the Point” and “In Concert with Nature”.  These will continue until August 14th.  Grab a couple of lawn chairs and come out to relax by the water and enjoy the music.

For those of you who enjoy dulcimer music, the Dulcimer Folk Festival will be on June 8th and 9th on the Marina Stage.  You may listen to music starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday and noon on Sunday and lasting all day.  See the calendar for more information.

Hope you will be able to enjoy the out-of-doors soon and often at Eagle Creek Park.  There is a lot to do and enjoy so close to home.
