I will be joined by my talented wife Joanna and daughter Sophia for an outdoor concert at the beautiful music court at the Francis William Bird Park in Walpole. This Summer Sunday Sing-Along Concert is sure to sound sweet, and we would love to see and hear YOU there singing with us!
Make it a whole afternoon adventure and leave time to explore this lovely park. Stroll meandering pathways and cross artisan-built stone bridges at this family-friendly park of open fields, groves of trees, and frog ponds. Managed by the Trustees of the Reservation, it also features bike racks, a "tot" lot, tennis courts, and basketball nets, all testaments to park designer John Nolen's belief that play should be an active part of the park experience. That sounds good to me!
