Fact Friday: National Kids to Parks Day is May 21

To spotlight the importance of outdoor activity, tomorrow May 21st is National Kids to Park Day. The AAP is a partner in National Kids to Parks Day, a new campaign from the National Park Trust (NPT).

The purpose of the day is to mobilize children across the country for a nationwide park "play-in." Thousands of children already have committed to visit a national, state or local park on May 21 by signing up at NPT’s Buddy Bison Web site. The site includes resources for families for healthy, outdoor living. Kids are encouraged to participate in social media around the event.

We are hopeful for good weather tomorrow so try and get out and visit a national park, or a park in your community. Encourage play and the outdoors in the same day!
