Okay, so here's the deal. On the 27th of July, something epic went down at Homestead Park. We hosted this super cool event, and guess what? Over 100 of you fabulous folks showed up, ready to rock and roll! You guys totally impressed the Social Vision team with your enthusiasm and awesome ideas.

So, what happened at this shindig? It was all about bonding with the park and making it even better than it already is! You got to unleash your inner storyteller, go on thrilling treasure hunts, create some wicked maps, have a go at bushcraft, and take guided tours of the breathtaking gardens.

But that’s not all, peeps! Social Vision introduced our nifty Energy Map, and let me tell you, it’s a game-changer. It gave everyone, no matter their age, a chance to point out their favorite spots in the park and what they’d like to see improved. Talk about community involvement at its finest!

We got the inside scoop from one event-goer, and they couldn’t stop gushing about the whole thing!

"Forget those boring tick boxes, man! This event was off the charts! My kids loved it, and it brought back memories of my childhood at the park. Count me in for the future fun!"

But guess what? The fun doesn’t stop there. Get those calendars out, because Homestead Park has more awesomeness lined up! Mark the dates, August 12th and 24th. Two events packed with storytelling, more art, and loads of love for one of York’s finest green spaces. Don’t miss it!
