The Waukegan Park District is celebrating Kids to Parks Day on Saturday, May 18, 2024 from 9am to 11am at Corrine J. Rose Park, located at 412 S. Lewis Avenue. Organized by the National Park Trust, the mission of Kids to Parks Day is to foster future outdoor enthusiasts and help with developing the next generation of park stewards by engaging kids in memorable outdoor experiences.

2024 marks the fourteenth anniversary of Kids to Parks Day. This year’s event will feature sports, kite flying, and a guided walk with educational presentations about the park’s history. Free popcorn and kites will be provided for participants while supplies last.

Traditionally hosted on the third Saturday of May, Kids to Parks Day is a national day of outdoor play that encourages kids and families to get outside and create their own adventure at thousands of local park events and programs. National Park Trust works with cities and towns, teachers, families, park and public land officials, as well as numerous sponsors and partners to make these events possible.
