Winterlude: A Neighborhood Exploration

The Old East End Neighborhood Coalition is spicing up Schmanska Park (63 Grove Street) to help you chase away those winter pandemic blues! Winterlude has been adapted in support of local COVID-19 prevention efforts.

All activities are self-guided explorations, complete with helpful planning tips.

Join them as we roll out new activities. Currently, we are highlighting Schmanska’s epic sledding hills. Coming attractions include a new woods ramble for walking or snowshoeing, a story walk and scavenger hunt to delight neighbors of all ages, and a barn illumination where we light up the cold, dark night!

Winterlude is brought to you by the Old East End Neighborhood Coalition with generous support from Burlington Parks, Recreation and Waterfront, AARP Vermont, Auxilium Fund, and the University of Vermont Office of Student and Community Relations.
