Just For Kids
Your City Summer 2014
Come hang out with park rangers, get creative, and explore your city’s stories! This summer, Lowell National Historical Park invites families to Your City Summer, a regular series of free intergenerational activities. Each Friday from June 20-August 22, come to Mack Plaza near the Visitor Center from 10AM-11AM for creative activities exploring three themes important to Lowell’s past and present: Family Stories (June 20-July 4), City Kids (July 11-August 1), and Stories of Stuff (August 8-August 22). Your City Summer will take place outdoors (weather permitting, rain location inside the Visitor Center) with different explorations each week.
