10:30 Meet Lesley at the playground. She'll be the one in the Blue Star Families t-shirt.
11:30, the group will explore Chessie's Trail.

This 2,160-foot trail is designed for children of all abilities with features that appeal to the senses. Visit the sound garden, play with spinning rocks, stroll the boardwalk or rest in the unique nest seating area. Along the way, encounter all kinds of wildlife figures representing animals indigenous to the Chesapeake Bay region.

There is a carousel that cost $3.50 per person. BSF will not be covering the costs of rides at this time.

Our Special Harbor is not open week days until June 17th.  The splash pad does open for weekends and holidays on May 27th.  Take a look around though. This a great FREE way to entertain the kids during the hot summer months.
