Springs Brook Park was open to Bedford residents and members, along with their guests on July 4. There was room for everyone, and toddlers to seniors were ready to celebrate the day.
A tiny girl, making her way back to the car with her father, wasn’t crazy about the sand that crept into her shoes. “It’s her first visit to a beach,” her father said. In contrast, a long-time Bedford resident has taken out a senior membership ($50 per year) to help assure that Springs Brook Park has a successful season. “Just look at this,” she said, gesturing toward the beach and the scores of families enjoying the holiday, “The Park deserves to be supported. With the membership, I’ve already been here four times and I wouldn’t have come that often without it.”
The picnic tables were full, sun-worshippers dotted the beach, and The Yo-Yo Guy performed just after lunch. Cars continued to stream into the parking lot, watermelon was served mid-afternoon, and a DJ Dance Party capped the celebration.
