Looking for something to do this Saturday? Try a visit to the village of Hyde Park, where there will be a games and activities throughout the village between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. that day.
The event on June 15 is occurring in conjunction with the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail Fun Days, and is the culmination of more of a year of gathering community input as part of the Connect Hyde Park project. People can provide final input on that project that day; free cookies and an informational booth will also be available at Fork & Gavel, lawn games can be played at Elsa French Park and kids can paint rocks on the lawn of the Lanpher Memorial Library.
Hyde Park’s Pop-Up History Trail is also launching that day; the 1-mile trail runs through the village with signs and photos of historic buildings and locales. Serving as a test run for a longer-term activity and history trail in the village, the history trail will be open all summer long.
On Saturday people can pick up a map and scavenger hunt list, and anyone who completes the scavenger hunt can turn the completed list in at Fork & Gavel or the library to get a coupon for Hyde Park’s newest business and only restaurant.
With plenty of foot traffic anticipated in the village, drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes during the celebration.
