Looking for something fun for the kids to do this summer without breaking the budget? Sometimes the best method for making lasting memories is through the simplest of activities.

For us, that consists of giving children the gift of play in the great outdoors. That’s why we are excited to provide for the third year in a row our free Play in the Park series!

Tuesdays through Aug. 6, children of all ages can join Plano Parks and Recreation staff from 9-10 a.m. at Willowcreek Park (2101 Jupiter Road) for fun, heart-pumping games like limbo, tag, relay races and much more. Did we mention the free popsicles?Park5

The purpose of the program is simple: to play! We want to give all children in Plano the opportunity to enjoy the social and physical benefits that come with being in the great outdoors. Regular physical activity in childhood improves strength and endurance as well as:

  • Helps build healthy bones and muscles
  • Controls weight
  • Reduces anxiety and stress, and
  • Increases self-esteem

In fact, young people ages 6-17 should take part in at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Not only does Play in the Park promote physical health, these childhood activities also encourage sportsmanship, teamwork and overall well-being.

No sign up necessary—just meet us at the park and let’s play! For more information, call us at 972-941-7250. We hope to see you there!
