Winter Celebration tradition continues at R Park

Rendezvous Park (R Park), a program of the Jackson Hole Land Trust, is excited to announce the date of the Annual Winter Solstice Celebration.

We invite the community to celebrate the shortest day and longest night of the year at R Park on December 20th from 5pm to 8pm. Visitors are encouraged to park at the Stilson Lot from which a complimentary shuttle will be running to-and-from R Park throughout the event. The festivities this year will include family-friendly Junior Ranger activities, glow-in-the-dark bocce, holiday carols, and a warm bonfire. R Park’s pathways will be lit with ambient sweedish fire torches, and sledding is always encouraged. Complimentary seasonal beverages and warm chili, cornbread, and mac and cheese will be served by Genevieve Catering.  Jackson Hole Stillworks is sure to put you in the holiday spirit with a $5 specialty holiday cocktail.

“We are excited to host our annual celebration for the Jackson community. As always we encourage community members of all ages and backgrounds to come join the festivities and enjoy the outdoor fun that R Park offers during the winter months,” said Jr Rodriguez, JHLT Community Conservation Manager/R Park Director. “Winter at R Park is a magical time of year, especially on the Winter Solstice. The sledding is incredible, animal tracks are easily seen and for the brave, the ponds are frozen for skating.”

Adult volunteers are always needed. If you would like to volunteer or learn more, contact Ellie Stratton-Brook at 307-733-4707 or ellie@jhlandtrust.org.

R Park is located at the intersection of Highway 22 and the Teton-Village Road (4270 River Springs Drive, Wilson). Participants are encouraged to use alternative forms of transportation to attend, such as, START Bus or the community pathways.
