Every third Saturday of the month from January 18 through April 19, Lowell NHP invites families to experience, create, and explore at the visitor center from 11 a.m.-12 noon for Your City Saturdays,  a weekly morning of free arts and crafts, games, stories, and music. Kids will design their own cloth, write songs about our city, experiment with building bridges, and lots more, with different activities each week.

The program builds upon the success ofthe popular “Your City Summer” series of outdoor family activities offered by park rangers this past summer. In the fall, the park invites families with kids ages 4-10 to continue the creativity year-round with Your City Saturdays, while providing activities to connect kids and their families with Lowell’s extraordinary past and present in fun, hands-on ways.

Since Lowell was founded as the country’s first major planned factory center in the 1820s, this city has constantly reinvented itself, reflecting cycles of industrial development, immigration, and preservation. Your City Saturdays aims to nurture the seeds of creativity in Lowell’s next generation of national park stewards, encouraging kids to continue in this hands-on tradition of reimagining the community of Lowell.
