8th Annual Mike Cooley Overton Park 10K Trail Race was a great success, the runners, volunteers and supporters were treated to free Marcos pizza, WiseAcre Tiny Bomb, super T-shirts and a really good race as the Trails were in super shape despite the weather. Come out next year (always the last Saturday in January) in support of the Nature and Limestone Trails in the Old Forest and Overton Park as all net proceeds are used for the Trails and other areas of the Park.

Friday October 26, 2018 6:00 - 8:00 PM
Tell your board member if you desire the Hayride to continue in 2018, it is a fun event for the children and adults alike, but the interest has waned. Ride a mule-pulled wagon through the Old Forest (no actual hay for hay fever sufferers) and enjoy a campfire and s'mores under the stars. Bring your family and friends to the East Parkway pavilion area of Overton Park.
