Join us on October 2, 2021, to celebrate land preservation and get a sneak peek of the recently preserved Belle Vue Farm in Havre de Grace before it becomes a public park.
Field parking space is limited so will be offering two visit windows: 8:30-10 or 11-12:30. Please select the visit window that works best for you and plan to arrive promptly at the start of your visit window to allow for a safe entry and exit for all visitors.
PLEASE NOTE: Belle Vue Farm is still a working farm and not yet a public park. There is no park infrastructure at this time and entry is not permitted at any other time or date.
