Discover Webster through play!

12 Jun

Here’s a great idea for some inexpensive, healthy family fun this summer.

It’s called the “Find a Way to Play” playgrounds passbook. This is a new program from the Webster Parks and Recreation Department which encourages families to get outside and explore all of the great play areas we have here in Webster.

The 10-page passbook highlights many places right here in town where children and adults can be active and have fun. It encourages everyone to visit different facilities and discover each one’s unique amenities.

The booklet provides a brief description of not just playgrounds, but two spray parks, the skate park and more. It includes:

  • First Responder’s Playground
  • First Responder’s Spray Park
  • Recreation Center Obstacle Course
  • Karpus Family Playground at Miracle Field
  • Ridgecrest Park Playground
  • Ridgecrest Splash Park
  • Ridgecrest Skate Park
  • Kent Park Playground
  • Finn Park Playground

The challenge is to visit each one of these play areas, and record in the booklet the date you visited. Then take your completed passbook to the Recreation Center. Each child who completes the “tour” of Webster playgrounds will receive a token of accomplishment.

What a great way to encourage healthy activity, while learning a little bit about our town along the way. Make it a challenge for the whole family!

Passbooks are available right now at the Webster Recreation Center, 1350 Chiyoda Drive.
