Play Old-Fashioned Games and Enjoy Ice Cream 

Morris Parks' Ice Cream, You Scream: An Old-Fashioned Day of Fun on Sunday, August 4What goes better with a hot summer day than the cold taste of a delicious ice cream treat! On Sunday, August 4, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., take the family to Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center in Chester Township to enjoy an old-fashioned summer day filled with games, such as hoops and sticks, croquet, a yo-yo contest, and more.

Watch the duck races as entries float through the site’s water features among historic gardens. Bring your camera along for a scenic guided tour.

Plan on relaxing? Take your favorite lawn chair and blanket, and even a picnic basket, and enjoy an ice cream treat.

Bamboo Brook’s gardens were designed by Martha Brookes Hutcheson, one of the first women landscape architects in the United States. These gardens were designed for cool fun on hot summer days. So travel back in time to see these gardens in their full summer glory. Cost is $8 per person. Preregistration is required.
