Please come join us celebrate our annual picnic. Secluded, peaceful and relaxing that is the spot we have at Hopkington State Park. Our group will be gathered in the Split Rock Pavilion area. Whether you want to mingle and chat, take a few minutes to simply enjoy nature or take a short walk down to the beach there is something for everyone. The picnic includes all the usual picnic goodies. Feel free to bring something to share if you like. You don’t have to be a NEDS member, so come on over enjoy the food, make some new friends and hopefully take in the sunshine.
Please note, other areas of the park fill up quickly on a nice day, so the rangers are required to close the gates early. Our spot does not fill up we have it all to ourselves. So come early don’t be locked out.
