Snowshoeing in South Park
Rangers from Allegheny County Parks will be leading and teaching about snowshoeing! This fun winter activity is a great way to get out and see the park in the wintertime as well as get exercise! Families do not need any prior experience, so come out and have fun! This program does require at least 6 inches of snow, so in the event we don’t have that amount, they will hold a Winter Nature Hike instead. Snowshoe rental cost: $10 for ages 11+ and $5 for ages 5-10. Registration required. Please register for one time slot (a parent/guardian must accompany a child).

Saturday, March 3 from 10 am-12 pm OR from 1-3 pm

Baby Wear Dance
You won’t want to miss this preview dance/exercise class with your baby! Participants wear their baby (facing in) in a carrier while using music and dance to bond with their child! Music ranges from Pop to Funk to Soul, and no dance or choreography experience is required – just bonding with your baby! Babies must be in an ergonomic, two-shoulder carrier or equivalent. Please arrive 15 minutes early to be wrapped and ready to dance! Both males and females are encouraged to attend! Registration required.

Wednesday, March 7 @ 6:30 pm
