"Know Your Parks" Visits the Farm

The November/December episode of the Springfield-Greene County Park Board's "Know Your Parks" television show is now airing on Mediacom Connections Channel 22 and is also streaming online at http://bit.ly/dXe5vw.

On this month's show, we're at Rutledge-Wilson Farm Community Park. We'll highlight some of the activities and programs happening at Rutledge-Wilson like Christmas at the Farm, as well as take a look at how they prepare the farm and its animals for the cold winter. Also stay up to date with winter programming from the SPARC program, a partnership between the Springfield Public School System and the Springfield-Greene County Park Board providing activities for kids when school is not in session.

"Know Your Parks" shows are available at 7 p.m., Fridays and 9 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month on Mediacom Channel 22. The show also re-airs on CityView, Mediacom channel 80 and 80.1, the City's government channel throughout the month. Visit www.springfieldmo.gov/cityview for a monthly schedule.
