FRIENDS OF ROBBINS FARM PARK EVENTS

  • Spring Cleanup & Kite DaySaturday, April 29th, 9am
    Bring your trowels, rakes, leaf rakes, shovels and pruning shears and meet your neighbors at the Park! And while we’re there, we’ll celebrate the crocus, daffodils and tulips planted at Robbins Farm Park last fall! At 1pm, bring you kites as well and hope for good wind at one of the area’s best kite-flying locations. If you come early and help in the cleanup, you’ll get a free kite.
  • NO INDEPENDENCE DAY EVENT AT ROBBINS FARM PARK THIS YEAR
    Cancelled due to Park construction. Please see Robbins Farm Park Improvement Project Notice on the home page.

Enjoy the music of Count Basie, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis, and many others!

OTHER EVENTS AT ROBBINS FARM PARK

  • Astronomy Nights 2017 with Jeff Alexander
    This summer there will be a series of Astronomy Nights at Robbins Farm Park. Each night we’ll have at least one telescope out to view objects in the night sky. This summer, the star of the show is a solar eclipse on August 21st, but the night sky will still have a lot to offer. There’ll be plenty to see — the sky is the limit! Click here for details.
