Winter Solstice Celebration: Yoga, Forest Bathing and More

W.W. Knight Nature Preserve

The winter solstice is traditionally a time for reflection and celebrating the return of longer days. It is also the shortest day and the longest night. Perhaps this year, with some preparation and planning, we can plant the seeds for a more intuitive, simpler, and natural holiday season. Winter can become a time of feeding the spirit and nurturing the soul, not just emptying our bank account and fraying our nerves.
Find your own festive cheer this time of year! Stop by anytime between 11:00 am and 2:00 pm to search for hidden gifts in the park. Borrow one of our GPS unites or bring your own smartphone with the Google Maps app. Dress for the weather and be prepared for substantial walking and self-guided exploration.
Pick up your 2019 Passport to the Parks at the Park District headquarters, or any of our park kiosks. This self-stamping passport is a fun way to keep track of the great activities you participate in! Once you have collected 10 or 20 stamps you can redeem your passport at the Park District headquarters for great prizes!
