Get Out and Hop A Park

Tommorow, July 6th is a gret day to join the crowd during Hop a Park Day and get out and have a bit of fun. Getting families out to enjoy the outside is the goal but there are many physical and mental benefits as well.

Our family has loved visiting and playing at parks for years. The Governor of New York in 1686 declared that part of all vacant areas of land should be cared for , and created into city parks. Thirty plus years later and the total of parks and gardens total in the thousands all over the world.

When at the park try some of these fun filled family activities

  • Play a game of  tag, its a great way to get two or more players participating in one activity. one person is normally it and they chase the other kids. The game is a great way for children to release energy and offers great fitness as well 

  • How  about a game of frisbee. Frisbee is a trademark name of a game using a flying disk. It is ideal for older children. Whether you simply throw the frisbee back and forth or gather the whole gang up to play ultimate frisbee that results are the same lots of fun. 

Every year on the first Saturday in July a day is set aside to celebrate the National Hop a Park day. It's a time to get away from the technology in the world and take a trip into the green spaces and public parks in your own community.

  1. We love to visit our local parks for some exercise, especially in the Fall when it is cooler. It is a great way for the kids to burn off some energy.

  2. We always enjoy visiting our numerous local parks! There is one with an awesome exercise area and another with a huge duck pond. So fun!

  3. Oh, my son loves frisbie! He will play for hours and hours in our front yard.

  4. We hit the parks all the time where we live! And playing frisbee is definitely one of our favorites too!
