Nyack Park Conservancy Pop-Up Adventure Playground
May 19, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - May 21, 2017 @ 6:00 pm
A celebration of child directed play, adventure and creativity! Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 12-6p.
What is a Pop-up Adventure Playground? It’s a one-time free play event open to kids of all ages. It only “pops-up” for a few days so don’t miss it! The focus is on child directed play, which is the play that evolves when children choose what to play and make up their own rules about how they’ll play.
The playground itself is an area devoid of screens, monitors, computer keyboards, mouses or joysticks – it’s an outside area filled with…well, filled with random stuff! Cardboard boxes, lengths of plastic piping, tubes, tires, containers, ropes – a veritable cornucopia of random objects, there to imagine with and build whatever the kids can dream up!
The idea is simply to get kids playing outside with other kids, in an environment that flexes their creative muscles.For three days we will be providing a fenced in play space in the park For more information, please visit www.nyackparks.org/events.
