We invite families to come take a walk with us and enjoy our Story Strolls! Story Strolls are free family-friendly activities that the whole family can enjoy together and bond through literacy while spending time outdoors exploring our community parks. There are 20 stations along the stroll with activities that families can do to interact with the book. The average time to complete a stroll is 30 minutes. Featured books along the Story Strolls will be rotated.
