Mile Square Park, Fountain Valley
Sunday June 19, 10am - 2pm

OVERVIEW: Inside the large, urban, easily accessible, and mostly grass covered Mile Square Park is a wild nature area filled with 15 acres of native plants. Near the entrance to the nature area is where we are having a relaxed, social picnic. Bring your simple to elaborate picnic supplies. Bring your family and friends of all ages. (Bring a dad for Father’s Day!) Bring your sense of adventure for excursions into the nature area. 

ACTIVITIES: Enjoy a picnic with family and friends. We will have a table with nature activities for kids and adults. Take walks through the native plant area to test your plant identification skills (or to get lost - 15 acres!). Bring or rent bikes to casually ride through the larger park. Rent paddle boats at the north lake. Toss a Frisbee. Bring your dog (park requires leash). Relax and smile.
