"Animal Olympics" Coming Sunday To Nixon Park

In honor of the 2012 Summer Olympics, the York County Department of Parks and Recreation will present “Animal Olympics.”

This unique program will be held from 2:30 p.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday, September 9, 2012 at Nixon County Park.

Join Park Program Coordinator Jeri Jones to take the animal Olympic challenge. If we competed with the animals, who would hold the record for long jump, 100 meter dash or swimming?

This energetic, family-oriented activity will pit humans against animal records. Who will bring home the gold?

This program is free with no pre-registration required. For more information, call the Nixon Park Nature Center at (717) 428-1961.
