Make sure you come prepared with comfortable walking shoes and sunblock and bug spray if needed. Other items you may want to bring include water and a camera. Please leave the pets at home, so the animals are not scared away.

SCI has been collaborating with the City & others to create a pavilion at Ice House Park by Horn Pond. The goal is to provide a more aesthetically pleasing structure than the trailer currently used for many events at Horn Pond, including SCI's free summer concert series!

This would also provide better lighting for the concerts. The plans for the pavilion are being discussed at a Conservation Committee meeting at City Hall on Thursday, April 11 at 7PM.
