Parks & Rec Hosting the Party of the Century

Posted by thowens on July 15, 2015

Auburn Parks & Recreation Department is hosting the "Party of the Century" and you're invited! Auburn's beloved Eckhart Park is turning 100 years old, and Parks and Rec is hosting a birthday blow-out for the entire community to celebrate the milestone. Mark your calendar for Saturday, July 25, from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., for a fun-filled day of food, games/prizes, historical displays, nature tours and more.

The party will take guests back in time to showcase how the park—donated by Charles Eckhart in 1815—has changed along with the surrounding community. There will be horse-drawn wagon rides and tours of period pieces at the National Auto & Truck Museum. Additionally, the Auburn Community Pool will be open free of charge to all party-goers. And, of course no birthday party would be complete without cake and ice cream!

Eckhart Park's 100th Birthday Party is generously sponsored by many local businesses, organizations and individuals. The entire event is free to the public so gather your friends, family and neighbors and head to Eckhart Park for all the food, fun and frolicking you can cram into a single day!
