Aurora Parks Explored at New Museum Exhibit

City Parks Explored at New Aurora History Museum Exhibit
Posted on 06/02/2021

The Aurora History Museum & Historic Sites is opening its second in-person exhibit in less than a month. An exhibition about Aurora’s parks: “Aurora Parks Explored,” will run from June 2, through Oct. 31.

Tucked into neighborhoods across the city, parks offer an oasis for recreation, relaxation and play. The city has about 100 parks, and these are considered places where childhood memories are forged and families gather. At the “Aurora Parks Explored” exhibition, visitors will learn more—and explore—the city’s parks in a new way. 

“The city of Aurora Parks, Recreations and Open Spaces Department has become a great resource to assist in the quality of life for all of Aurora’s residents, and in this exhibit, we explore some of these special places,” said Aurora Museum Director T. Scott Williams. “Whether you enjoy the playground, swimming pool, skate park or open space, Aurora’s parks have a lot to offer. We invite you to share with us your favorite parks and enjoy this new exhibit.”

To complement the exhibit, there will be an Escape the Parks activity box with escape-room- style puzzles and games available at the museum store with a $5 suggested donation.

The Aurora History Museum & Historic Sites, located at 15051 E. Alameda Parkway, is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Also showing at museum is the exhibit “The Rise of the Aurora Suburb During the Cold War.” Admission to the museum is always free. For more information, visit
