NATIONAL KIDS TO PARKS DAY – MAY 21, 2011

The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department is celebrating “National Kids to Parks Day” on May 21, 2011. The Duluth Parks and Recreation Department is committed to providing recreational activities for kids and adults to participate in and actively enjoy the park facilities to establish a healthy community. In an effort to bring National recognition to Duluth, the City Recreation Department is asking all families to pledge online at www.BuddyBison.org their participation in this national movement. All kids, families and adults that complete the online pledge will receive a free “Duluth” Frisbee. Participants may claim their Frisbees by bringing their pledge confirmation to the Bunten Road Activity Building, or by visiting the Health Fair on May 21 in downtown Duluth. “National Kids to Parks Day” is sponsored by the National Park Trust, a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and protection of our parklands and reconnecting youth to the great outdoors. National Kids to Play is endorsed by the National Education Association (NEA), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP, DC), and the President’s Council on Physical Fitness, Sports & Nutrition.
