The Berks County Parks & Recreation Department will host a night of unique fall experiences at the Berks County Heritage Center on Friday, October 7, from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. This is an event that only happens once a year, so you don’t want to miss out!

Enjoy a nighttime view of our beautiful park while learning more about the history of Berks County and our natural world. Oh, and have a little Halloween-themed fun while you’re here! The whole event is family-friendly.

  • Take a GUIDED HIKE down the Union Canal Trail and meet characters and creatures of the Tulpehocken Creek Valley.
