Hey Park Folks!
We have lots of fun stuff coming up for the neighborhood but also, opportunities to plug in and help make this Park a success. The Sunday work party, this Sunday and every Sunday from 10-2 is truly one of main ways the Park gets up kept. We have a small crew out every Sunday that would love to have you join them. Make some time in your Sunday routine to ensure that this Park thrives. If Sundays aren’t convenient talk to us about setting up another work party during the wek.
Our second to last movie is coming up this Monday at 9 pm and will be the 2010 remake of Alice in Wonderland. A young girl when she first visited magical Underland, Alice Kingsleigh (Mia Wasikowska) is now a teenager with no memory of the place — except in her dreams. Her life takes a turn for the unexpected when, at a garden party for her fiance and herself, she spots a certain white rabbit and tumbles down a hole after him. Reunited with her friends the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), the Cheshire Cat and others, Alice learns it is her destiny to end the Red Queen’s (Helena Bonham Carter) reign of terror. Don’t miss out to enjoy a feature film under the stars with your neighbors.
