Trying to get your kids away from their electronics, and out in Nature?
The Roe Jan Park is one of the best places around to go with the whole family. There are several trails; a dog park; a community garden; a small stream; some playground equipment; a volleyball net; gorgeous scenery;and of course, our farmers market!
NEW: thanks to the generous Caroline Stewart, we now have several “activity packs” for children of all ages. Different packs contain different tasks, challenges and games. I spotted a compass, a magnifying glass, a map, crayons, and more!
To borrow a pack (or 2), go to the Manager’s table during the market (9-1) and sign out your pack. Just be sure to get it back by 1 when we close up shop.
At the market itself, you will find (most Saturdays) Ashling Kelly and the “Farm Market Kids”. Ashling, youth coordinator at the RJ Community Library, organizes fun, interactive games and projects from 10AM to noon inside the covered barn. More info HERE.
If music is your thing, you can enjoy very talented local musicians performing live from 10-1 every week. Folk, rock, pop, jazz, bluegrass; soloists and duos; relaxing and energizing. More info HERE.
So, so get out, come over, and enjoy some time with us in the Roe Jan Park!!
9140 Route 22, Hillsdale NY (across from the Roe Jan Community Library).
