Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board Come Out and Play! Family Nature Club
Exploring nature in our neighborhoods
You don't need to leave the city or even your neighborhood to enjoy fun in nature. It's time to get outside and play!
Come Out and Play is a free, no-registration, no-obligation program that encourages families to get out and enjoy nature. Research shows that kids who spend time in nature are more relaxed, happier, learn and sleep better, and enjoy better physical health than those who spend the majority of their time indoors.
Join our club leader and her children in a natural setting for some unstructured play and exploration. Kids of all ages and their adults are welcome, including (of course) babes-in-arms. Each month the club leader picks a new location in a Minneapolis park to explore. The club meets on weekdays and weekends so all families have the opportunity to participate.
