Country Picnic

The City of Long Branch hosted this BBQ and Community Gathering that offered live country music, free food and games for the kids like sack races, tug of war and corn hole.  A ribbon-cutting ceremony with the mayor celebrated the new and improved Jackson Woods.  Guided tours of the Woods were available and many people wandered through the park on their own to explore and enjoy all that Jackson Woods has to offer.

Family Fun Night

A family event sponsored by Long Branch Recreation.  Kids made bird feeders, ladybug rocks and participated in a park scavenger hunt.  An Audubon guide educated families on the birds of the Woods.  And of course there was time to climb the rock pyramid!  Family fun for everyone.
