Story Path

Story Path is a program that was created as a fun way to encourage physical activity and literacy! Story Path is made up of individual pages of a children’s book which are placed on different signs. The signs are placed in the ground along a short walking path. You can enjoy a stroll along the path and read a fun children’s book as you walk along!

The best part is it’s an easy way to knock out two steps in the 5-2-1-0 program: getting 1 hour or more of physical activity each day and 2 hours or less of screen time. Give your child’s eyes a break from their digital screens while getting them up and moving on the Story Path.

We’re back for our second season!

Story Path had to be temporarily taken down at Utica Park due to construction. Please check back soon for updates.

Join FCPL this summer for Summer Challenge 2020 as we explore, invent, and transform our story.  Spend your summer reading, visiting community destinations, and enjoying fun, family-friendly activities like this story path all while earning points and winning prizes.  Summer Challenge 2020 begins on June 1st and runs through August 31.
