Wednesday Park Chats

Join us for our 3rd year of Park Chats!

In 2021, as we were beginning to come out of Cov-id and wanted to start meeting people face-to-face, we started Wednesday Park Chats. Each week we chose a different park and people brought their own chairs to come have a chat.

It was so popular that once the weather got cold we moved inside to the Barnes and Noble coffee shop at Har Mar, then back to the parks in the Spring. Park chats continue to this day!

Come join us Wednesday morning anytime between 10 and 12ish. You come whenever you want, stay as long as you want, talk or listen, it’s up to you!

Here is the list of parks for 2023. If you have any questions, email Kathy at She’ll be there with her chair and a pinwheel!
