For the first time ever, Party in the Park is coming to Ryerson’s Woods on Thursday, June 13, from 6:30-8 pm.

Stop by Ryerson’s Woods, located at 2961 Old Highway 218 South, to enjoy local entertainment by the Yahoo Drummers of Iowa City along with a variety of outdoor activities, craft making, and treats.

Partner up with a parent or guardian and explore the park’s trail in an “Amazing Race” style scavenger hunt. Have fun finding clues, solving puzzles, and completing challenges while you race to the finish line. Be sure to bring bug spray and wear appropriate shoes as the trail runs through a densely-wooded area.  Other activities include making your very own popsicle stick catapult, playing outdoor games, and learning about converting your turf grass to prairie with Green Iowa AmeriCorps.

Party in the Park is free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets to enjoy the live entertainment.
