During his State of the County address on June 7, County Executive Adam Bello talked about investing in the Monroe County Parks system and offering more ways for residents to enjoy our County parks. As part of this initiative, County Executive Bello is excited to announce the return of Movies in the Park, a series of family friendly movie showings in six Monroe County Parks.

“Throughout the pandemic, we encouraged people to go outside for safe recreational activities, and tens of thousands of Monroe County residents came out to see what our 22 County-run parks had to offer. I’m happy to announce that we’re bringing back Movies in the Parks and they are going to be bigger and better and accessible to more Monroe County families than ever before,” said Bello. “This year’s lineup offers something for residents and families of all ages, so I hope you’ll join us at our great County parks.”

The Monroe County Parks system was showcased throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Park attendance was higher than ever, with people exploring the outdoors – from fishing and boating, to hiking trails, golfing and bird watching. Movies in the Park will provide Monroe County residents with another family-fun opportunity to enjoy our County parks.
