Lowell National Historical Park Joins
National Find Your Park Movement
National Park Week 2015 Encourages Everyone to Find Your Park
Lowell, Massachusetts. — Lowell National Historical Park joins parks, programs and partners across the country to encourage everyone to find their park and share their stories online at FindYourPark.com. Launched yesterday by the National Park Service and the National Park Foundation, Find Your Park is a public awareness and education campaign celebrating the milestone centennial anniversary of the National Park Service in 2016 and setting the stage for its second century of service.
Find Your Park invites the public to see that a national park can be more than a place — it can be a feeling, a state of mind, or a sense of American pride. Beyond vast landscapes, the campaign highlights historical, urban, and cultural parks, as well as the National Park Service programs that protect, preserve and share nature, culture, and history in communities nationwide.
“Find Your Park” is also the theme for this year’s National Park Week, April 18 – 26. During this timeframe, Lowell National Historical Park is hosting PlayCation activities, co-hosting Earth Day activities with the The Umbrella Community Arts Center, and opening the Tsongas Industrial History Center to student participants and their families during “Kids Take the Lead Day”. In addition, the Lowell Canalwaters Cleaners are conducting a spring clean-up at and along the canals on Saturday, 4/25. Each activity provides opportunities for visitors to “Find Your Park.” For more information on these events and ongoing offerings at the park, please or call 978-970-5000.
