Kings Park Psychiatric Center Walking Tour

 ,   Add to calendar
 Kings Park  See map

Meet across the street from Kings Park Psychiatric Center in the parking lot of RJO Intermediate school.  The tour will last about 2 hours and will be led by Kings Park Historian Steve Wever.  Video and still cameras may be brought along.

Learn about the history of each building, the purpose and the folklore associated with the buildings and grounds. Along the way we have former employees as special guest speakers, giving additional information. Past speakers have included King Pedlar and Gil Harris. We do not go inside of the buildings and we can not permit any discussion talking about accessing the inside of the buildings.

All hikers should be fit enough to hike for approximately two hours and should bring water. If you are less-able or dis-abled let us know and we will do our best to accomodate you.

We ask for a $15 donation, 100 percent of which supports the Angels Without Faces organization which provides emergency assistance to Kings Park families.

Please register online at www.angelswithoutfaces.com or email info@angelswithoutfaces.com.

Loved the tour! It's always a pleasure to hear Steve talk about KPPC. And, thank you to Gil Harris and King Pendlar for sharing their fond memories. What a fun way to raise money for such a wonderful cause. Can't wait till part two!

Looks like you guys had a great day. About how long was the tour?

It was three hours, but it went by really fast. We walked about three miles on and around the boulevard. Next time, we're going on the KPPC property west of Old Dock Road and north of St. Johnland Road. You should join the party! It's on Halloween Eve, so maybe the ghosts will be out...
