Discover activities to enjoy with family

Summer is right around the corner and Mountaineer Country is ready for it! As the sun peeks over the horizon earlier and sets over the mountains even later there’s so much to explore. To help you make the most of this extended daylight, we put together a list of activities for you and your family to try. Cool off at the pool kick-off at Camp Muffly Park. Celebrate Memorial Day with your heroes at the Memorial Day Heros Swim Free Event at Mylan Park. Stop by the Morgantown Farmers Market every Saturday for fresh local produce and products. No matter what you decide, take advantage of the sun high in the Mountaineer sky!

The pool will be open seven days a week from noon-5 p.m. Check out Camp Muffly Park’s Facebook page for more information regarding season passes, private pool party rentals and more.

Memorial Day Heroes Swim Free Event, 10 a.m. Monday.  

There is so much to remember this Memorial Day and what better way than spending it poolside at Mylan Park? All first responders, active military and retired veterans and their families are invited to swim completely free. There is no need to pre-register, just bring a valid ID and service credentials for a day of memorable fun. Here in Mountaineer Country, we honor those who have sacrificed for our freedom and now it’s time to celebrate. 

Morgantown Farmers Market, 8:30 a.m. June 1. 

 The Morgantown Farmers Market is a great option for those looking to find local and fresh ingredients, produce, meat, baked goods and more! Stop by the Spruce Street Pavilion from 8:30 a.m.-noon every Saturday  and get a taste of the mountains while supporting local farms at the same time. This is a great adventure for the whole family, or leave the kids at home for a relaxing morning stroll. We can’t wait to see what you find at the market.
