Paint By The Pond

Saturday, May 28 at Warinanco Park

The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Department of Parks and Recreation invite youngsters ages 4 to 12 years old to participate “Paint by the Pond.” The newly created interactive art project will take place on Saturday, May 28 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. with a rain date of Sunday, May 29 at the pond in Warinanco Park. The pond is located near the snack bar and basketball courts. This event will allow children to paint cardboard model houses and create art on poster board. At the end of the program all participants will be invited to help sail these special houses in the pond.

The “Paint by the Pond” project will teach families about the importance of recycling while encouraging children to pain on cardboard, creating art from materials usually thrown away.

There will also be miniature houses made from out of cardboard boxes floating in the pond at Warinanco Park.

“The pond at Warinanco Park is the perfect place to host ‘Paint by the Pond’ and awaken our children’s interest in both art and nature,” said Union County Freeholder Angel G. Estrada. “This promises to be a fun and unique event to kick off the summer season.”
