National Kids to Parks Day- May 19th! Celebrate in Delray Beach!

Kids To ParksMay 19 is the 2nd Annual National Kids to Park Day created by the National Park Trust.  The goal is encourage our youth to get out and enjoy the outdoors as well as to ensure the future stewardship of our parks.   With the proliferation of electronic games and laptops, it’s important that our youth have the opportunity to experience the outdoors as we did when we were growing up.  

More than 15,000 families participated last year, and they’re hoping for more on Saturday, May 19th.  

There is a fun site (kidstoparks.org) where you can register and show your support of National Kids to Parks Day and learn about programs in your area.  There’s the Buddy Bison program where children can get their own Buddy Bison and send pictures and share their experiences  of their outdoor park travels with Buddy.

Did you know that already 68, 516 have pledged to

go to a park on May 19th!


Delray Beach will be participating with a free event on May 19 from 10 AM to 1 PM at Pompey Park.  There will be field events, arts & crafts,  free pool activities and much more.  

Pompey Park

1101 NW 2nd Street

Don’t forget these other area parks:

What a great idea Kathy, and yes, with the proliferation of internet based games and hand held devices, it's imperative that kids and parents wake up and smell the roses.

Good morning Kathy -

The National Kids to Parks Day- May 19th! Celebrate in Delray Beach sounds like a great event. It's seems kids these days don't know how to just go outside without gadgets and just let their imaginations run wild as they play outside.

Have a great weekend and Happy Mothers Day!

Dorie- thanks!  It really makes me have to go out and discover my area, which I love anyway. 

Richard- oh never give up acting like a kid!!! It keeps you young. 

Janis- thanks to the Internet!!!

BARFF- that's what you need.... get outside and get some fresh air, but stay off your feet.

Kathy- alas, I cannot take credit for it... it's the internet.

Joanna- Larry and I drive through neighborhoods and wonder why the kids aren't outside playing. 

John (QMAN) - you said it so well.... what's going to happen to their creativity.

Scott- I think it will.  I think it would be fun to get a Bison Buddy for a child.

Debbie- thanks and I'm just glad Delray is so family oriented.

Michael- I agree... let's get the kids out and enjoy our parks.

Joni- I know that various mayors have endorsed this day and proclaimed it as such.  Check around!

Kristine-yes... let's schedule a phone date!!!

Kathy, never heard of National Kids to Park Day.... a great event indeed for kids!  They need to be outdoor and not indoors playing with their gadgets. Suggested.
