Springs Brook Park: Bedford’s Best Bet for the Fourth of July

Compiled by The Bedford Citizen

With the thermometer headed into the 90’s through the first full week of July, Springs Brook Park and its programs are ready to welcome Bedford families looking for a great local beach, and special family events.

Events, games, and festivities are planned throughout the day on July 4; free watermelon will be served at 2 pm; a Lowell Spinners ticket drawing will be held at 3 (winner must be present!) Dancing and games led by DJ Mike Pride, 3 to 5 pm, will engage kids and adults alike.

Editor’s Note: Bedford residents are eligible to purchase one-day passes, and various season memberships are available. Click this link to learn about Springs Brook Park’s 2018 season and programs

Looking Ahead to Weekly Summer Fun

  • ‘Create with the Crew’ during Thursday afternoon Arts and Crafts sessions, each week in July at 3:15! Most appropriate for ages 6 to 10, or ages 3 to 5 accompanied by a parent.
  • Pop-Up Games take place 3 or 4 times each week. SBP lifeguards lead a game of their choice! It could be anything…an obstacle course, bingo, a treasure hunt? The games will be announced on the loudspeaker.
