Kids to Parks Day

Kids to Parks Day is an annual nation-wide event that encourages outdoor play and adventure. Organized by the National Park Trust, municipalities across the nation participate each year. To celebrate Kids to Parks Day, Roanoke Parks and Recreation hosts a free outdoor festival each spring. 

MAY 20, 2017: 1 – 4 P.M.

Swing by Wasena Park on May 20 to enjoy an array of bouncy castles, facepainting, an outdoor scavenger hunt, prizes, a magician, balloons and more! One lucky raffle prize winner will be awarded a $330 gift certificate to Cardinal Bicycle. Water and light snacks will be available at no charge, in addition to the following food truck vendors: El Budare Grill, Dojo Grill and Viva La Cupcake.

SCAVENGER HUNT

Explore the wilderness along the Roanoke River Greenway near Wasena Park to uncover clues. Complete the scavenger hunt puzzle, and you could win a prize! Adult supervision for scavenger hunt participants is strongly encouraged.
