Launched in 2011, Kids to Parks Day is a nationwide celebration of the great outdoors organized by National Park Trust (NPT) and is designed to connect kids and families with their local parks. By discovering and exploring our public parks, kids can learn about park stewardship, outdoor recreation, and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). By teaching our kids to appreciate and enjoy our public lands, we can foster future outdoor enthusiasts and create the next generation of park stewards and caretakers of these important places. Because kids need parks – and parks need kids!
By coordinating a wide array of park activities on a single day, Kids to Parks Day attracts first-time park visitors as well as existing park enthusiasts. Join the West Fargo Park District during various activities happening throughout our parks this summer!
