Plenty of activities for kids! And those still young at heart can enjoy sitting under a shade tree listening to music, watching the kids or enjoying any of the wonderful food and sweets from the Red Barn Kitchen or famous Pie House.

Much of the Great Pumpkin Patch has been newly renovated and updated. We have a totally new inflatable park with a Great Jumpin' Pumpkin, incredible Super Slide that is fun for young and a Smaller Slide for those not quite ready for the challenge of the Super Slide. The all new Bungee Run is a great way to challenge friends and family to a competition of strength and skill and provides loads of laughter for those watching the challenge.

The Great Pumpkin Patch Train is all new and is a fun way to ride around the pumpkin patch. It provides an excellent opportunity for photos that will be treasured for a lifetime.

Our Wagons are totally new and ready for rides out to the pumpkin patch to pick your own pumpkin to take home.

The new Hay Pyramid for kids is built just for climbing and jumping onto a soft bed of hay just like growing up on a farm. There is a great place for parents and grandparents to sit and enjoy a cool drink or snack and watch the kids master the pyramid.

The Petting Zoo is ready for young and old to see and pet different farm animals in a safe and fun setting.

Of course, we will have Live Entertainment and a Halloween Costume Contest.  There will be other games and events throughout the month including a craft weekend with local artisans to show off and sell their artwork.  And the Country Store is well stocked with local goods and other items for sale.

The Pony Rides are always a favorite for kids as well!

Prior to the dayhike we will get together at the smaller pavilion right near the Park Office to eat our picnic lunches.  Please bring your picnic lunch and also $3 per person ($2 for children age2-6 and seniors age 62 and older) park admission and a beverage for yourself.

Dayhike Details: Hike rated easy as there are only a few ups and downs.  Total hiking distance is approximately 5.5 miles.  We plan to walk all the way around the lake and then also walk on some additional trails in the park to make the drive time down and back worthwhile.  Well-behaved, carefully supervised children age nine and over able to walk 3 miles without complaining are welcome.  Please bring your drink and wear sturdy footwear.

Before the selfie, before the Polaroid, and even before the photograph, there was the silhouette, a profile portrait made from cut paper. Silhouettes were a hugely popular and accessible form of portraiture in the nineteenth century, offering almost instant images of everyday Americans—women, men, black, white, presidents, and laborers. Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now explores this previously unstudied art form by investigating its deep historical roots and considering its forceful presence today.

CHRISTINA A. WEST: UNSCENE
AUG 26 – DEC 14
Atlanta based artist, Christina A. West, creates immersive, site-specific installations that utilize figurative sculptures and the alteration of space to create psychologically charged environments. West’s figures, which the artist distorts through an adjustment of scale and proportion, are found sitting, standing, kneeling, and crawling. The monochromatic figures, and their relationship to the fabricated interiors in which they reside, provoke subtle feelings of visual and spatial discomfort.

Building on her previous work, West’s AEIVA installation, Unscene, emphasizes the ambiguous space between—between narrative moments, between past and present, between actor and audience. The scene presented is pulled apart with the use of fragmentation, scale shifts, the integration of photography, and strategies that direct viewers through the space.

Plenty of activities for kids! And those still young at heart can enjoy sitting under a shade tree listening to music, watching the kids or enjoying any of the wonderful food and sweets from the Red Barn Kitchen or famous Pie House.

Much of the Great Pumpkin Patch has been newly renovated and updated. We have a totally new inflatable park with a Great Jumpin' Pumpkin, incredible Super Slide that is fun for young and a Smaller Slide for those not quite ready for the challenge of the Super Slide. The all new Bungee Run is a great way to challenge friends and family to a competition of strength and skill and provides loads of laughter for those watching the challenge.

The Great Pumpkin Patch Train is all new and is a fun way to ride around the pumpkin patch. It provides an excellent opportunity for photos that will be treasured for a lifetime.

Our Wagons are totally new and ready for rides out to the pumpkin patch to pick your own pumpkin to take home.

The new Hay Pyramid for kids is built just for climbing and jumping onto a soft bed of hay just like growing up on a farm. There is a great place for parents and grandparents to sit and enjoy a cool drink or snack and watch the kids master the pyramid.

The Petting Zoo is ready for young and old to see and pet different farm animals in a safe and fun setting.

Of course, we will have Live Entertainment and a Halloween Costume Contest.  There will be other games and events throughout the month including a craft weekend with local artisans to show off and sell their artwork.  And the Country Store is well stocked with local goods and other items for sale.

The Pony Rides are always a favorite for kids as well!

Prior to the dayhike we will get together at the smaller pavilion right near the Park Office to eat our picnic lunches.  Please bring your picnic lunch and also $3 per person ($2 for children age2-6 and seniors age 62 and older) park admission and a beverage for yourself.

Dayhike Details: Hike rated easy as there are only a few ups and downs.  Total hiking distance is approximately 5.5 miles.  We plan to walk all the way around the lake and then also walk on some additional trails in the park to make the drive time down and back worthwhile.  Well-behaved, carefully supervised children age nine and over able to walk 3 miles without complaining are welcome.  Please bring your drink and wear sturdy footwear.

Note-To view photos of what we will see on this trip, please click on this link:

Before the selfie, before the Polaroid, and even before the photograph, there was the silhouette, a profile portrait made from cut paper. Silhouettes were a hugely popular and accessible form of portraiture in the nineteenth century, offering almost instant images of everyday Americans—women, men, black, white, presidents, and laborers. Black Out: Silhouettes Then and Now explores this previously unstudied art form by investigating its deep historical roots and considering its forceful presence today.

CHRISTINA A. WEST: UNSCENE
AUG 26 – DEC 14
Atlanta based artist, Christina A. West, creates immersive, site-specific installations that utilize figurative sculptures and the alteration of space to create psychologically charged environments. West’s figures, which the artist distorts through an adjustment of scale and proportion, are found sitting, standing, kneeling, and crawling. The monochromatic figures, and their relationship to the fabricated interiors in which they reside, provoke subtle feelings of visual and spatial discomfort.

Building on her previous work, West’s AEIVA installation, Unscene, emphasizes the ambiguous space between—between narrative moments, between past and present, between actor and audience. The scene presented is pulled apart with the use of fragmentation, scale shifts, the integration of photography, and strategies that direct viewers through the space.
