Events

It may be fun, it may educational, it may be fundraising … but whatever it is, my friends at the Beautiful Joe Heritage Society will be raising my profile and telling folks about my story and my unique park.

Sunny Sunday Tours of Beautiful Joe Park

In July & August, if it’s SUNNY and it’s SUNDAY (aka not raining), join one of my friends from the Beautiful Joe Heritage Society for a relaxing 30-minute walking tour of Beautiful Joe Park (162 Edwin Street).  Once within the park, the footing for the tour is level and there are several benches for resting spots if needed.

TIME:  noon to 2 p.m.

Tour features:

  • history of the author (Marshall Saunders) and my story
  • interesting, amusing and sometimes emotional anecdotes … and some strange coincidences
  • learn the story of this historic and unique park, its monuments … and it’s future

Interested in a  private or group tour, contact us admin@beautifuljoe.org.  Groups of up to 40 people can be accommodated with advance notice.
