Parks After Dark Winter Season
File photo. L.A. County Parks After Dark Winter Wonderland.


Snow days return to the southland as Los Angeles County Parks & Recreation reprises its popular Parks After Dark Winter Wonderland festivities at 34 L.A. County parks, including Val Verde Park, over three weekends in December.

Parks & Recreation Snow Patrol teams will bring 40 tons of snow to area parks, allowing families to ride sleds, make memories and take part in a host of holiday-themed activities, including a toy giveaway for park goers ages 0-17, while supplies last!

New this year are Mega Snow Days, which will double the family fun by bringing 80 tons of snow to selected parks! There will also be photo opportunities, snack stations, holiday treats, silk-screening, a teen zone and a craft village where children can decorate their own holiday stocking!

Snow Patrol teams, consisting of dedicated L.A. County Parks & Recreation employees, will arrive 4 to 6 hours prior to the event to begin set-up.
