The York County Department of Parks and Recreation will present a hiking series called "Family Rambles" at Rocky Ridge County Park this summer.
These informal hikes will be held from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on three Wednesdays starting this week and continuing on Wednesday, July 25, and Wednesday, August 8.
Families are invited for hikes led by York County Parks Advisory Board member Anne Walko and her 10-year-old daughter.
This program is meant to "leave no child inside," as recent research finds that children who get outdoors are happier, healthier and become more engaged in education. Each child must be able to walk for 60 minutes, and must be accompanied by an adult.
The programs are free with no registration required. For more information, call Nixon County Park at (717) 428-1961. For this and other programs, go to www.yorkcountyparks.org.
