Your City Summer is part of a year-round series of family programs that includes Your City Saturdays (October-April), Lowell Kids Week (February school vacation), and April PLAY-cation (April school vacation). These programs aim to inspire creativity in the next generation of National Park stewards, and to engage families in hands-on explorations of Lowell’s unique stories, past, present, and future. Lowell played an important role as the country’s first major planned industrial center in the 1820s, and continues to reflect cycles of creativity, industry, immigration, and innovative urban planning.
While you’re in the city, make a day of it! Family-friendly activities at Lowell National Historical Park include canal boat tours, museum demonstrations, Lowell Summer Music Series kids’ concerts, and trolleys.
