Local Park

Remember how fun it could be to just while away the afternoon on the swing set at your local park?

Most parks now have more than just the classic monkey bars and jungle gyms. Many also have bocce ball, volleyball courts, paddleball--the list goes on.

Head over and check out what your park has to offer, and then challenge your kids to a friendly game. To make it interesting, make it a summer-long tournament, with a prize for the winning team at the end of the summer.
