Our goal is to introduce children and parents to new and unique ways to use park spaces, make it easier for children to get active, and to help improve children’s physical and mental wellbeing. Please note that there will be no programming July 1st– 3rd and August 5th– 7th. Park Activation is not a child care program. In fact, we encourage parents to participate with their children – to join in on the fun and Run. Jump. Play. Everyday.
