At the end of May, the Park District completed an outstanding week with the Banana Slug String Band. Over 3,500 school students attended the Hug the Earth School Festival and 3,000 Family Festival. The festival featured the grand opening of our new Natural Play Area and a tree climbing station.
School is now out, so take the time to build on what your kids experienced in the parks this year and go visit your favorite park with your family and friends. There are still some openings in our summer Eco-Splorers
camps, so make sure to get your kids involved and register!
Kick off your summer with a 5k trail run at Garbry Woods Reserve on June 23 at 9 a.m. This is the first of five races in the 2013 Trail Run Challenge
. Miami County Health District nurses will be onsite at the first and last race to give free blood pressure and BMI assessments. This race series is a great opportunity to set and track health and fitness goals over the next five months! Get outside, get healthy and discover your local parks.
Lastly, don't forget to check out all the great programs the Park District has to offer for kids of all ages. Each week there is something new to discover. So don't sit inside, get outside and explore the outdoors this summer!
