Tuesday, December 19, 2023 from 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm outside of the Recreation Activities Center.

Celebrate the most magical and darkest night of the year and the slow return of the sun with WB Parks! Come learn about nature in winter as you explore the half mile lantern lit trail.

Activity stations will be set up throughout this experience:

  • Create a glowing craft
  • Oakland Astronomy Club will be guiding you through the night sky with telescopes (weather permitting)
  • A custom glowing ice carving will be on display for a photo-op
  • Warm cocoa will be waiting for you at the end of the trail
  • Roast a marshmallow around a fire

This event is entirely outside; dress accordingly. This is a self-guided walk. If trail conditions are dangerous/icy the event will be canceled. Hiking poles will be available to borrow (limited supply). Bring your own lantern or flashlight. The 5 pm time slot will not be completely dark and is recommended for our youngest participants. Must be at least 3 years to participate. All adults and children must register.

Fee: $7 per resident and $9 per nonresident
