In an effort to get more kids into the outdoors, Cheyenne Mountain State Park is inviting the public to attend its “Kids to Parks Day” on Saturday, July 24.
From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. that day, park staff and volunteers will offer a wide range of special hands-on activities for families to explore involving just about every outdoor activity you can imagine.
Best of all, it’s all free with your valid park pass.
Want to learn how to shoot a bow and arrow? Park staff will be teaching archery at its range.
Maybe you want to learn about fishing. Staff and volunteers will be holding fishing games.
There will even be a fire truck and ranger boat on hand for kids to explore.
Kids will get other opportunities, too, including games, crafts, “Agents of Discovery” missions and more family fun.
All activities will be held at the Limekiln Trailhead in the park. For more information, check out the park Facebook page at facebook.com/CheyenneMountainStatePark
