[ARCHIVED] Community Day for Outdoor Play on May 19

Proclamation presented to Recreation Services Department

Mayor Scott Singer recognized the Recreation Services team with a proclamation at the May 7 City Council Workshop announcing May 19, 2018 as "Kids to Parks Day."

Eight years ago, the National Park Trust organized and launched Kids to Parks Day to empower kids and encourage families to get outdoors and visit America's parks and engage with recreational facilities in the community. The proclamation is being used to introduce a new generation to community parks and broaden childrens' appreciation for nature and outdoors. It also encourages families and children to lead a more active,  healthy lifestyle. 

Kids to Parks Day encourages all children and adults to enjoy the City's 46 recreation facilities, 19 playgrounds and 4.8 miles of beachfront. Boca Raton parks include fun activities and facilities from a Children's Science Explorium and community theaters to elaborate jungle gyms and even a sea turtle rehabilitation center. 

Michael Kalvort, Recreation Services Director; Jessica Harvey, Youth Program Director; Drew Leganik, Parks Maintenance Administrator; and Baylee Leganik, Youth Counselor, accepted the proclamation.
