Burris Park

About the Program

  • Burris Park Outdoor Education is a collaborative effort of KCOE, the Burris Park Foundation and the County of Kings. During the 2019-20 school year, schools will have an opportunity to experience standards-based outdoor education activities in this beautiful setting in the northeastern portion of Kings County. There are different lessons for different seasons; this means that having outdoor education during both fall and spring highlights the way weather affects the park and its wildlife. Also located on the grounds of the park is the Kings County Museum. The museum has Native American artifacts, as well as many objects illustrating the history of the area.
