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 is now featured at Utica Park. Bring your family, get outside, and enjoy a good book!
