park day July 12, 2011

I have all kinds of mistakes for this week's park day! The Sunday Morning News says we're meeting at Scenic Park, but we're actually meeting at Takishla Park. I have no pictures because I seem to have deleted them from the camera without saving them to my computer first. So I'll make a normal "new park" kind of post later and just give directions right now:
Northern Lights head west (away from Muldoon)
Right on Lake Otis
Right on 20th Ave (the stop light)
The park is at the end of the dead end.

This park DOES have a port-a-potty. It also has a baseball field, so bring baseball equipment if you want to play baseball.

park day, 7-5-2011

We're on a roll -- two weeks in a row with no rain. The next park day is at Scenic Park Elementary School playground. Since this is a school playground, there's no restroom. I'll definitely have to revise the park schedule for next year to go to parks with restrooms!


  • Northern Lights toward the mountains
  • Right on Patterson
  • Scenic Park is on the left side of the road a few blocks down Patterson.

Park Day 6-28-11

I think I made a mistake in the Sunday Morning News this week. I put in there "Nunaka Valley Park, North" but it might be the South one. OOPS!!!! CLICK HERE for directions. It's supposed to rain, so my mistake might not matter. But we'll bring towels again just in case it doesn't rain but the equipment has little puddles on it.

We've been rained out two weeks in a row. I'm really hoping we finally get to enjoy a day at the park this Tuesday! We're going to David Green Park. CLICK HERE for directions, picture, and description.

Mt. View Lions' Park

Our first Park Day of 2011 will be this Tuesday, June 7 from 10 a.m. - noon at Mt. View Lions' Park. If it's raining, we'll have to cancel Park Day this week and hope for better weather next week.

  • Boniface headed north
  • Left on Mt. View Dr.
  • Right on N Pine. Parking lot is at the back of the park.

  • Small children's section
  • Swings for all ages
  • Slides for all ages
  • Climbing equipment
  • Covered picnic areas
  • Picnic tables
  • Park benches
  • Tennis court
  • Restrooms

  • Spread out, might be difficult to watch more than one child at a time.
  • Sand in some places.
  • Some of the equipment is the old-fashioned, less than safe kind -- very fun, but there is the possibility of injury.

Park Days, 2011

School's out, so it's almost time for Park Day! We'll be going to a different park each Tuesday from 10 a.m. until noon. Let's hope we don't get rained out this year! My kids and I scouted out a couple new parks to go to this year, and we're also going to some old favorites. The first Park Day will be June 7, and the last one will be August 2.
