ELIZABETH, NJ—The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Department of Parks and Recreation invite youngsters 4 years old to 12 years old to participate in “Paint in the Pond” on Saturday, October 6 at the pond in Warinanco Park. This interactive art project will run from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.

“The pond at Warinanco Park is a perfect setting for young artists to gather with family members to create beautiful projects while learning the importance of recycling,” said Union County Freeholder Chairman Sergio Granados.

This will be the third year “Paint by the Pond” will be presented to allow children to paint cardboard model houses and create art on poster board. There will also be miniature houses made with the cardboard boxes floating in the pond during the event.
