Our fishing derbies are an excellent opportunity for children to enjoy the historic Essex County Park System in a different and fun way. You’ll have a great time creating your own ‘big fish’ stories and spending some quality time with your friends and families in some of the most beautiful parks in the area. We invite everyone to come out, cast their lines, experience Essex and take a look at the improvements we are making to revitalize our parks.
For Children Ages 15 and Under. It's FREE to enter and you can win a prize! Bring your own fishing pole, bait, chair, bucket and family!
