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
