The Town of Poughkeepsie Recreation Department is excited to announce the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting celebration for Creekside Park.  Along with the opening festivities will be a family fun night.

Creekside Park, located at 35 Victory Lane in Poughkeepsie, will celebrate their ribbon cutting with a great night out for the entire family on Monday, July 26. The food, games and fun begin at 5:30pm, and the live music entertainment will run from 6:30pm until 8:30pm.

This family-oriented event will feature jumbo yard games, race cars on display from Dyson Racing Team Inc, and a free concert from 'The Crew' with songs from the '60s, '70s and '90s.  Of course, there will be food options for the family, with Max's Melts Gourmet Grilled Cheese Food Truck on site.
