It’s summertime and that means picnics in the park. Many Santa Clarita residents pack up food, the kids, a couple of blankets and head over the shady area of William S. Hart Regional Park to enjoy a little family time.
Besides the picnics and the games, a special attraction at Hart Park is the Hart Mansion and Museum. If you are interested in local history and Western art, the Hart Mansion is a good place to start.
Friends of Hart Park are looking for a few good men, women and young adults who would like to volunteer a couple of hours on the weekend at the Hart Park Gift Shop.
If you are in need of volunteer hours for school or just have some free time on the weekend and would like to get involved with the community, this is a great location.
The Gift Shop operates Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m.
