Looking for a family friendly event for next weekend? Friends of Northaven Trail is screening Disney’s The Wild next Saturday, June 25 at 8:45 p.m.

Attendees are encouraged to come early, as the Northaven Church playground will be open before the movie.  The church is located at 11211 Preston Rd.

The Wild is an animated film about a lion from the New York City Zoo who escapes with a band of furry friends and has to learn to navigate the city.

Two parking lots are available for the movie: a north lot off of Northaven Road and a south lot off of Preston Road and the trail.

Want to help make the trail even better? Friends of Northaven Trail is working with the Hockaday Neighborhood Association and a local Girl Scout Troop to raise money for a new respite with shade, drinking fountains and benches along the Northaven trail at Welch and donations are accepted online.
