HPD Celebrating 50th Birthday With Monthly Hikes

The Hancock Park District has a big birthday coming up this year.

The park district was created on October 19th, 1970, meaning they’ll be turning the big 5-0 in October.

To celebrate their upcoming birthday, they’re holding birthday hikes each month through October.

People are invited to the next birthday hike on Sunday, February 16th at 4 p.m. at Riverbend Recreation Area, shelter 3.

Then a birthday hike will be held at a different park location each month through October.

People are then invited to have some birthday cake as the park district turns 50 on October 19th from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Litzenberg Memorial Woods’ Activity Barn.
