City Kicks Off Summer Parks Program
Tallahassee is encouraging local kids to explore the city’s parks in a series of four events this summer. The series kicked off over the weekend at Lake Elberta Park.
Charla Lucas spends most of her time working at Cascades Park, but Saturday she was at Lake Elberta setting up two kids with colored pencils, cold water and a scavenger hunt. It’s part of a national push called Every Kid in a Park. Lucas says this summer city officials will be hosting events like this one at three other parks.
“All of them will feature a scavenger hunt of some kind,” Lucas says, “just some of the parks will have different questions or I guess missions on them.”
The next round will be held at Lafayette Heritage Park Trail July 18. It’s followed by San Luis Mission Park on August 15, and A.J. Henry Park on September 19.
