Evansville Parks Department Announces Return of Park-N-Rec Events
Summer may be half over, but there's still plenty of time to get outside and enjoy some family fun.
Trying to keep the kids entertained when school is out can be tough, especially younger ones. Sure, they could just watch TV all day, goof around on the computer or tablet, or play video games, but they need to get out of the house every once in a while and do something that requires physical movement. But, trying to find something that allows for that and won't cost a ton of money can be tough. Fortunately, the Evansville Department of Parks and Recreation has a solution.
Earlier this week, the Department announced they are bringing back their Park-N-Rec program for the remainder of the summer after a successful debut last fall.
The program will happen every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 1:00 until 3:00 PM (weather permitting, I assume) at a different city park each time. In addition to the playgrounds and open space each park already provides, the Department will have representatives on hand with other activities including yard games, dancing, arts and crafts, sports games, and more.
Where You Can Find It
The program will take place at these parks on the following days:
- July 13 - Bellemeade Park
