Highfield is excited to be hosting a summertime series of family Storywalks® beginning June 28th!
In collaboration with the Falmouth Library Youth Services, Highfield will present a Storywalk ® along the ADA Accessible Historic Beech Tree Path for 10 weeks this summer. A new story will be installed each Monday, starting June 28, 2021 and ending September 6, 2021.
The walk will begin at the gravel parking lot entrance and travel down among the musical instruments and beautiful historic Beech trees which are over 100 years old! Families will be able to enjoy the serene setting while reading a story together. The selected books will cover a variety of topics and situations to appeal to everyone. Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and relax on the grounds afterward. The extensive gardens offer many additional fun explorations for families with children including a scavenger hunt on the grounds!
Copies of the books will be available to borrow from the library, or to purchase in the Highfield gift shop.
