It’s time to get the kids outside and active at Three Rivers Parks District Outdoor Play Areas opening for 2021!
Many of look forward to the Season Opening of Three RiversParks District Outdoor Play areas. We would all love it if they were open year round, but many of the larger areas are not, mainly for safety reasons when winter and ice rolls around.
Thankfully the list of the outdoor play areas seems to be getting longer, so there are more options when it’s time for them to be open.
Hyland Park is the one out of all of them that we’ve been to the most. It’s the closest to us and we used to live in Bloomington so I just feel more familiar with it if we need to pick up a picnic lunch on the way or when our girls were younger, I could time the naps with the drive time.
Remember the fun of playing on a playground? Climbing, sliding, swinging higher and higher. Create new memories at the Play Areas located within Three Rivers.
With multiple areas designed for varying ages and abilities where toddlers to teens can let their imagination run wild. Monkey business never sounded so fun. The structures are inspected every year prior to opening and daily by Three Rivers Staff to ensure safety.
The best part is they are located in various areas around the metro, so it gives an opportunity to make plans to try each of them out on warmer days.
The BEST part of all of these play areas, they are free! No cost to park and no cost to play. Several options of places for the kids to burn off some energy. When our girls were younger we would meet up with friends and let them all play and then have snacks or lunch together.
One of the newest play areas is located at Baker Park Reserve. Feel free to check out the complete list and find a location near you, or plan out the route to check them all out during the summer. There really is something for everyone at the Three Rivers Parks.
