LOWELL -- This summer, Lowell National Historical Park invites families to Your City Summer, a regular series of free inter-generational activities that allow you to hang out with park rangers, get creative and explore your city's stories.
Each Friday, June 20-Aug. 22, come to Mack Plaza, 246 Market St., near the Visitor Center, from 10-11 a.m. for creative activities exploring three themes important to Lowell's past and present: Family Stories (June 20-July 4), City Kids (July 11-Aug. 1), and Stories of Stuff (Aug. 8-22). Your City Summer will take place outdoors (weather permitting, rain location inside the Visitor Center) with different explorations each week. Programs are offered on a free, drop-in basis.
Lowell played an important role as the country's first major planned industrial center in the 1820s, and continues to reflect cycles of creativity, industry, immigration, and innovative urban planning.
