It’s a great day to play in the park. Children in Sandy Springs can take part in a grassroots movement to reclaim America’s parks through play on Saturday, May 19, 2012, during the second National Park Trust’s (NPT) National Kids to Parks Day.
Mayor Eva Galambos will proclaim National Kids to Parks Day in Sandy Springs on May 19th and encourages locals to participate by exploring Hammond Park from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. “Sandy Springs is committed to healthy living and our wonderful parks and recreation areas like Hammond Park provide excellent spaces for outdoor play. I invite all residents to join me outdoors on May 19th, for National Kids to Parks Day,” said Mayor Galambos.
National Kids to Parks Day empowers kids and gives adults an opportunity to better connect with the kids in their lives. Sandy Springs and other cities across the nation are committing to a simple motto: “active kids are healthy kids” and National Kids to Parks Day encourages residents to use local parks and recreation sites to develop more active, healthy lifestyles.
