New Activity in the Park: Martial Arts

20140725_112546A new free activity is coming to the park for parents and kids. Check out our new Martial Arts class! The class is being held at the Belding Garcia Park starting Thursday, July 24 from 11am to 12pm. Come in loose workout clothes and sneakers. It will be a great workout.  The class will meet on Tuesday, July 29, Thursday, July 31, Monday, August 4, Tuesday, August 12, and Thursday, August 14.  Come join us!

When interviewing one of the kids who participates in the Summer Lunch and Sports and Fitness Program, Leslie told me the main reason she loves coming to the park is because she gets to hang out with her friends. Her answer to my question caught my attention because she was so excited when telling me.

As the program continues, faces are becoming more familiar. It’s like the park has regulars and they come all the time. Then it’s the people who come sometimes. Families who come on a regular basis say that they come to let the kids have fun and get a lunch instead of being in the house all day. It is something fun to do during the summer.

Families around the Iron Triangle are invited to come to the Belding Garcia Park to
participate in our Summer Lunch and Sports and Fitness Program. Come enjoy our activities Monday through Friday from 11:00 am to 1:00pm.
