Past & Future

     SNOW DAY IN CORTE MADERA  

December 3rd at Menke Park, beginning at 11:00AM

Yes, you read it correctly. There was a 100% chance of SNOW forecasted for Corte Madera on December 3rd and the weatherman was right this time! Everyone had loads of fun. There were games, refreshments and even a pony, kindness of the Corte Madera Chamber of Commerce.

The Parks and Rec Department had planned a free, snow-filled holiday celebration at Menke Park. There was sledding, a children's area, holiday carolers and a visit from Santa himself!

This was likely to be the final Centennial Event, and it was, indeed, a memorable time for all.
