Need a new idea for date night? Are the kids getting anxious about going back to school?
Come on out to Brooksvale Park for a relaxing, stress free evening under the stars.
Join the Astronomical Society of New Haven on Friday, Aug. 24 at 7 p.m. at Brooksvale Park for an evening of star gazing. The members of ASNH bring some pretty impressive telescopes and you’ll be able to see some of the heavens you’ve likely not ever seen or known about before, weather permitting. If there is a cloud cover or rain, come back the next day, Saturday, same place and time.
The Friends of Brooksvale Park host this annual event, which is free and open to the public. This type of activity is probably suitable for school age children and up.
Though many of our park activities are handicap accessible, please keep in mind the field is uneven for walking. Park in the large lot and turn your lights off promptly. You will be able to find the astronomy group in the large field adjacent to the parking lot. If you feel you must carry a flashlight with you, please place a red covering over the lens to dim the light. In consideration for others and the nature of the dark environs, please leave your dogs at home.
Because of bridge construction on Brooksvale Avenue, follow the detour signs coming off of Whitney Avenue by either River Rd. to Still Hill Rd. or Mt. Sanford Rd to access Brooksvale Avenue to the park.
