Dewey Short Visitor Center: Kids to Parks Day

Posted In: City News by

The Army Corps of Engineers Table Rock Project Office is hosting a special Kids to Parks Day Saturday, May 21 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Dewey Short Visitor Center.

Kids can participate in a variety of activities and games focusing on animals, water quality, and safety. Activities will be provided by Missouri Department of Conservation, Missouri Stream Team, Taney County 4-H, and the Army Corps of Engineers.

Hundreds of thousands of children nationwide will take part in a grassroots movement to discover America’s parks through play on Saturday, to commemorate National Park Trust’s sixth annual Kids to Parks Day.

Communities across the nation are committing to a simple motto: “active kids are healthy kids” and encouraging their residents to use Kids to Parks day as the first of many days spent outdoors, at local parks and recreation sites, to develop more active, healthy lifestyles.

Visit and sign up so you and your family can be counted in the national tally. Families are encouraged to visit a park or recreation area and submit photos of their adventures to [email protected] for possible includsions in NPT’s national map commemorating the day.

Students who are finishing fourth grade can also earn an Every Kid in a Park pass to enjoy federal parks for the rest of the summer.
