You may notice a theme here but if you do not, I am intrigued by these fun calendar holidays. I am constantly looking for something new and different to do with my family but also to blog about. I think it is a fun way to shine a light on things that might otherwise be overlooked. Like this Take a walk in The Park Day that happens on March 30th!
No, this isn’t something I made up ha-ha! It’s an actual day that is on a the National Calendar, it is observed annually and I am 100% behind it!
Naturally, I wanted to take this opportunity to mention several new parks in the Western suburbs that are worth checking out this year. So take this as a challenge and pick a park to #TakeAWalkInTheParkDay
Oak Brook Park District Sandlot-A Universal Playground
Central Park, 1300 Forest Gate Road, Oak Brook, IL
This new playground is designed so everyone, regardless of age, ability, or critical illness, will have the opportunity to socialize, play, and explore together.
Cantigny Park Playground
1 S 151 Winfield Road, Wheaton, IL
This playground is made to look like a grain silo, storage barn and water tower. A huge upgrade to what used to be here. I am super excited to introduce the kids to this one and since you are there, this is the perfect park to take a walk. You will enjoy lush gardens and some amazing historical aspects as well. Plan to spend a whole day here.
Conrad Fischer Park 200 E Diversey Ave, Elmhurst, IL
Conrad Fischer Park features a playground and several sports fields and courts, including a futsal court.
Sensory Garden and Playground
2751 Navistar Drive Lisle, IL
I can not wait to take the kids to this park. It looks absolutely amazing.
But according to Mommy Nearest, this horse-themed green and white playground has a barn, horses for bouncing and riding, slides, swings, a seesaw and climbing mound.
So where will you go on this #TakeAWalkInTheParkDay ?
