Intimate, Guided Trail Walks at I-Park

October 13, 2023 - October 14, 2023

We are reactivating our popular founder’s guided trail walks. Led by I-Park’s co-founder, Ralph Crispino, groups of between 6 and 12 guests at a time will be introduced, in a unique way, to the land and lore of I-Park. Each trail walk will be customized based on the date and time preferences, and the particular interests, of the group. A short survey will be sent in advance to gauge the preferences of the guests.

You’ll be exposed to the best of the best trails and art installations. You’ll learn about the 23-year history of I-Park’s artists-in-residence program, including some of the amazing projects that have been conceived here. You’ll also hear some weird and improbable human interest stories. I-Park has sponsored over 1200 fully-funded artists’ residencies over the years, so you can just imagine . . .

Available Dates (exact start times will be set by mutual agreement):
Friday, October 13, morning and early afternoon (decision deadline: October 11)
Saturday, October 14, morning and early afternoon (decision deadline: October 12)

Cost per guest: $50. All proceeds go to support I-Park’s international artists-in-residence program and its community engagement initiatives. The I-Park Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit charity under the IRS code.

There will be a wine and cheese reception (or something comparable, depending upon the time of day) upon arrival.

We’ll need a minimum of 6 guests in order to book the event. If we fail to reach this number by the deadline, your funds will be promptly refunded. To keep the experience intimate, no more than 12 guests at a time will be programmed. Plan for a 1.5 hour walk, though it can be longer or shorter based on your enthusiasm and stamina. Note that pets are not permitted on the I-Park grounds.

If you are interested in booking a guided trail walk, please contact Joanne Paradis at 860-873-2468 or by e-mail at events@i-park.org.
