Celebrate Veterans Day with Great Parks.

Great Parks’ Veterans Day Celebration at Sharon Woods

Great Parks is hosting a Veterans Day Celebration on Saturday, November 11, at Sharon Woods to honor all of the sacrifices our veterans have made.

This free event welcomes veterans and their families as the public. Festivities will center around the Pavilion Grove Shelter from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Families can join guided hikes along the Gorge Trail and paved trail, and learn how to throw a spear with an atlatl, or spear-throwing tool, too! Be sure to cozy around the fire and build some tasty s’mores – all of the fixins will be available for everyone, plus light refreshments and lawn games.

Veterans are honored year-round at Great Parks! Veterans get special offers on Motor Vehicle Permits, golf, fishing, and boat and campsite rentals. Learn more at

*** Note: November 11 marks their special Community Day; families can drive into the 22 parks and conservation areas of Great Parks without purchasing a Motor Vehicle Permit. ***
