The sometimes bitter cold that February brings can make it hard to get out and enjoy some fresh air. When you are looking for ways to keep up with your New Year’s resolution or just a way to get outdoors, look to your local park.

Depending on where you live there are some pretty awesome events taking place this month in your local parks. If you’re in San Francisco you can take advantage of The 50 Shades of Green: Valentine’s Day Happy Hour and Plant Love Tour in the Botanical Gardens or enjoy a Valentine’s Dance at Avalon Park in Chicago.

One thing is for sure, where ever you live there will be a local park with an event that you and the whole family can enjoy. From guided snowshoeing to ice skating under the stars there is fun to be had even in the cold.

Always remember to enjoy the park responsibly by following the Leave No Trace principles. https://lnt.org/learn/7-principles
