LANSING, Ill. (July 30, 2022) – “Thank you Village of Lansing for having us!” posted Thornton Township on their Facebook page during the July 29 Day in the Park at Fox Pointe. “As always, we look forward to bonding with our communities and community leaders while bringing our neighborhoods together for good food, family, friends & fun at Day’s in the Park!!”
The event was the 11th in a series of 13 visits to 13 parks in 13 Thornton Township villages. Days in the Park began in Hazel Crest on June 3 and will end in Burnham on August 8. Community members enjoyed free games, activities, food, and music.
Days in the Park was the brainchild of late Thornton Township Supervisor Frank M. Zuccarelli, who wanted to give communities an opportunity to enjoy summer traditions together. Current Supervisor Tiffany Henyard continued the tradition this year.
Fox Pointe is located at 18138 Henry Street, Lansing, Illinois.
The final two Days in the park are scheduled for Friday, August 5 (in Phoenix) and Monday, August 8 (in Burnham). according to a 2022 Day in the Park flyer.
