CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF OUR NATION WITH US AT BEAUTIFUL LAKE BENSON PARK ON MONDAY, JULY 3, 2017!

Join us for an evening of fun for the whole family featuring music from Bull City Syndicate and a headlining performance by the North Carolina Symphony.

Your children will love our Kids Adventure Zone featuring inflatables, games and crafts. Bring a picnic, or help your community by enjoying delicious concessions provided by local non-profit organizations.

Join us at the Garner, Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources tent for some fun activities to kick off National Park and Recreation Month!
