Do you have a kid who loves nature and exploring outside? Do you have a kid who prefers the indoors, but you want to get them away from screens and playing outside more? Either way, the NEW PAR Kids Club is for you! The Kids Club will meet every other Sunday afternoon at different locations in the Park and will have 1.5-2 hours for playing and exploring! We will occasionally have a short outdoors skills lesson or an organized game or activity, but the focus will be on child-led, free play in nature. This program is geared towards ages 3-10 but all ages are always welcome!
