aProCh: Making Our Cities Child Friendly (Parents of the Park)

On July 15, 2012 I had the greatest privilege of helping lead a Parents of the Park at Parimal Garden:

Parents of the Park is an initiative where children can and will experience “childhood”. It is a partnership between the city’s volunteers and the Municipality. Once a week, the municipality offers the park for children and during this time children engage in activities that enable them to have positive childhood scripting. The activities are organized by the parents and citizens who live around the park area as well as Riverside students. This means that a school can adopt the park for a month and offer activities to the children!

From January 2011, aProCh has started organizing Parents of the Park events in Parimal Garden. Story Telling, art and craft workshops, magic shows and other creative activities that transport children into the beautiful world of imagination, curiosity and creativity. Citizens and experts in their fields are bringing the parks alive for children

As I waited for everyone to arrive I couldn’t resist taking pictures. The park is very beautiful and full of walkers/joggers in the morning.

We started Parents of the Park right under a very colorful tree. We told a story about a pigeon and bus driver (kids had to keep the pigeon from driving a bus)

Again, this park is very beautiful!

After the story we played games with the kids that them pumped up and energetic!

After the games it was time for a magic show. This was probably my favorite part haha.

We even had adults there watching the show; that’s how interesting it was! 🙂
