About Summer Movies in the Park: The Summer Movies in the Park event series began in 2007 as a ‘take back our parks’ initiative, aimed at encouraging local residents to visit their county and city parks for a free and safe evening event. This initiative not only provided a fun community activity but also deterred inappropriate after-hours park use and loitering, giving residents an opportunity to feel safe in their local parks and encouraging future visits.

Event Evolution: Over the years, the program has evolved to include new movies, parks, participating partners, and options to make the events more accessible and inclusive. In response to the challenges of 2020, Virtual Summer Movies in the Park were introduced, offering 24-hour access to select films and accompanying activity kits. Drive-in movies were also added as a way to bring people outdoors safely during the pandemic. The creativity and flexibility of park staff have allowed the program to adapt and thrive, embracing technological and societal trends while ensuring a fun and safe experience for all attendees.

What to Expect:

  • Early Arrival Recommended: Come early to secure a good seat and enjoy pre-movie activities.
  • Family-Friendly Atmosphere: Bring your blankets, lawn chairs, and picnic baskets for a cozy evening under the stars.
  • Community Engagement: Engage with local residents and enjoy the sense of community that these events foster.
