Family Turkey Tromp and Plunge!

Any one for a bracing November plunge at the Turkey Tromp and Plunge at Viney Hill Brook on Nov. 26 at 10 a.m.?

Be part of or just watch some wacky folks plunge into Wollock’s Pond at Viney Hill Brook Park on Saturday November 26, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. , co-sponsored by  the Essex Land Trust and the Town of Essex Park and Recreation Department.

Prior to this daring event, plan on joining naturalist Phil Miller and Essex Conservation Commission members as they lead groups through the trails of this beautiful 92-acre town park, a hidden gem. The walk will last approximately 45 minutes and will be followed by the plunge. Participants in the plunge must sign waivers and be over age 18. This event is the last of 2011’s Essex Great Outdoors Pursuit. The park is accessed off Hillside Drive in Essex. Ample parking is available in the park, near the pond. Rain or shine.

The Essex Great Outdoors Pursuit has been created by the Essex Park and Recreation Department with the mission of bringing the families of Essex together through positive and healthy outdoor endeavors while increasing the presence and awareness of our local parks, open spaces and preserves to the community. The Essex Land Trust is pleased to be a co-sponsor of this program. For more information about the program, please visit the town website; click on “Park and Recreation
