Here's your chance to get an up close look at Perryville's park.
The Town of Perryville's first ever trek through the outdoors is already attracting attention.
On May 22, at 1 p.m. a Guided Nature Walk, led by Christy Michaud, will be held on the trails of the Perryville Community Park.
Michaud is a professional horticulturist. According to Amanda Hickman, Perryville's economic development coordinator, the goal of this event is to bring awareness to the park and the trails. "Our trails are underutilized," said Hickman.
Trees, native shrubs and perennials will be focal points.
Spots are being reserved. The walk will include a leisurely pace of about 90 minutes. And is about 1.5 miles. Everyone in attendance will receive a free native plant.
To reserve your space call 410-642-6066. In the event you cannot attend this nature walk, there will be another on September 18. There are other outdoor events planned for this summer in Perryville. On June 17, "Minions" will be shown in Lower Ferry Park. Those attending are asked to bring a lawn chair.
There will also be moon bounds, face painting, and food trucks on location.
On August 5, there will be a free community camp out and movie in Perryville Community Park.
