Welcome to the Outdoor Play Party. I’m really looking forward to seeing how everyone has been playing outdoors…especially now that the kids are back at school. I know that summer vacation is over, but I really wanted to share our outdoor play experience from our trip to New York City…Manhattan in particular. This was our first time visiting NYC with our daughters. I assumed that we would spend time in Central Park (which we did) and that would be our primary outdoor play time. What I quickly realized is that Manhattan is actually filled with little urban playgrounds.
It was easy to break up our days by spending some play time at the various street side playgrounds. The playgrounds, or gardens, are typically fenced and gated. Some included only climbing structures, while others had baseball diamonds and basketball courts. They were easy to access and great fun to play in. Don’t get me wrong we had an amazing time in Central Park, but discovering a new playground as we walked the busy streets was like discovering a water hole in the dessert. So fabulous.
Okay, time to get on with the party. We are so excited that Rebekah, from The Golden Gleam, is back from her summer vacation and is hosting along with Making Boys Men and Learning for Life. Be sure to stop by The Golden Gleam and discover how Rebekah spent her summer vacation. As for the last Outdoor Play Party…it looked like everyone had a fun time outdoors. Here are a few of my favourite posts.
