Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs

  1. Picnic in the Park for Preschoolers

    April 1, 11:00 AM - September 30, 12:30 PM @ Riverside Nature Center

    Preschool children and their families bring lunch and meet at the Riverside Nature Center in Animas Park for a picnic, followed by a story or activity and a stroller-friendly walk in the park. Learn about plants, insects, birds, and all the interesting wildlife. Feed the friendly ducks, and go home in time for naps. This program continues every week throughout the spring and summer.

  2. Navajo Blanket Donation Exhibit

    June 21 - September 9 @ The Farmington Museum

    The Farmington Museum is proud to announce an incredible gift of 21 historic Navajo blankets generously donated by XTO Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation. The Navajo blankets range in age from 1870 to 1900 and contain two third-phase Chief’s blankets, a small wearing blanket, and many other examples of early Navajo weaving from the blanket period. It is through their donation that the cultural beauty, legacy, and local Navajo heritage can be appreciated, preserved, and utilized to inspire future generations of Navajo weavers.

  3. Plants of Many Uses Exhibits

    July 1 - September 30 @ Riverside Nature Center

    Local plants were, and are, used in many ways for food, household items, and art. Visit this exhibit at the Riverside Nature Center in Animas Park off Browning Parkway, which will change throughout the summer to learn about the many uses of our local plants. Some of these uses will be featured in Saturday activity programs and walks.

  4. Knocking It Out of the Park: Celebrating 50 Years of Connie Mack EXHIBIT

    July 26 - November 1

    Fifty years ago, a delegation of Farmington businessmen traveled to the American Amateur Baseball Congress Annual Meeting in Chicago in what many thought was a futile effort to bid on the 1965 Connie Mack World Series. The delegation presented a convincing story and won the bid by one vote. 2014 marks the 50th year Farmington has hosted the Connie Mack World Series. It is not by chance or by accident that this tournament continues to be a success. It has been a team effort from the beginning. Since Farmington hosted its first tournament in 1965, the Connie Mack World Series has grown to be the largest and highest esteemed tournament in the realm of amateur baseball. The Farmington Museum is proud to present this exhibit honoring Farmington’s rich baseball heritage and the legacy of baseball in America.
