Arts in the park for some summer fun in the sun


School is out and summer is here.  Yay!  Are your kids bored yet?  No?  Yay, again.  But, when that time comes, why not take them to the park?  Northfield's parks are a great place to unwind, rewind, play, and enjoy the outdoors.  There are playgrounds, soccer fields, walking trails, picnic tables, lots of green and open spaces.  And, on certain Wednesdays from 1:00pm to 4:00 pm throughout the summer, there will be Arts in the Park brought to you by the friendly and creative folks at Northfield's United Methodist Church.  Children ages 5-11 are invited to create, dance, make music, snack, play games, and have fun with new friends and old ones. Add to this canvas painting, sculpting, beading, and nature art, all to make and take in the park to your home.  The fun starts Wednesday, June 22 at Spring Creek Park.  Each Wednesday event takes place at a different park: June 29 at Tyler Park; July 13 at Odd Fellows Park; July 20 at Way Park; August 3 at Central Park; and August 10 at Sibley Swale Park.
