County Recreation and Parks events

The St. Johns County Recreation and Parks Department reported to Historic City News that they have many exciting activities going on this season.:

Winter Wonderland
The 2nd annual Winter Wonderland opened Friday night at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre, and this year is even bigger and better than last year. New additions include the 100-foot ice slide and carnival-style reindeer games. Visitors will also enjoy the outdoor skating rink where it “snows” twice per night, the expanded elf village, sleigh rides, vendor booths, s’mores and much more!
