Celebrate the Park is held on the museum's front lawn. Food trucks are on-site for an additional charge, and park, trail, and lake merchandise is available for purchase. Be sure to take the park survey at the event for a free pair of sunglasses (while supplies last) and also be entered to win great prizes donated by community partners Lowes, Village Bicycles, REI, and Reach Orthotics and Prosthetics. The Mariners’ Museum and Park are located at 100 Museum Drive in Newport News. For information about the exhibits, hours and special events, visit the Mariners' Museum website.
