Our Urban Park Rangers specialize in interpretation of historic turning points, both natural and man-made, in our city's long history.  

The Jeffrey's Hook Lighthouse, erected in 1880 and moved to its current site in 1921, has become widely known as the children's literary landmark "The Little Red Lighthouse." A park ranger will be on hand to provide information about the history of this unique landmark while you tour the inside. 

First come, first served.
