HASTINGS PARK AND THE PNE FAIRGROUNDS
Saturday June 25

We will visit several of the keystone buildings and sites that highlight its development, that will evoke moments of sporting glory, of architectural and cultural transformation, of greening efforts, and of the park’s darker history.

Come explore at least five very different sites that are at various stages of their historical course.
