    Title: Play at Longwood Park Date: Monday August 29, 2011 Time: 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm Repeats: This event repeats every week. Location: Longwood Park, Salem VA Street: 601 East Main St. City State Zip: Salem, VA 24153 Notes: We'll meet at Longwood Park in Salem at 3pm. Usually we gather under the trees, either on a quilt or at the picnic table while the kids romp about.
    Longwood is located at 601 E. Main St. in Salem, near the intersection of Main St. and Thompson Memorial Ave. If you're coming off of 1-81, exit 140 puts you out on Thompson Memorial. The park is VERY easy to find!
    Should the weather be incliment (rainy, snowy, or under 40 degrees), we'll meet at the indoor playground at Burger King on West Main St. This is located directly across from the Duck Pond. Also very easy to find.
