KIDS TO PARKS™ DAY

A NATIONal Celebration of Our Parks


 

Kids to Parks™ (KTP) Day is a national day of outdoor play organized by National Park Trust in cooperation with 19 national collaborators. This year’s KTP Day will be held on Saturday, May 20, 2017.

Last year, more than 731,000 participants enjoyed 1,130 park events across the country. In addition, 420 mayors and elected officials proclaimed the day and joined in the celebration. What will you do on Kids to Parks Day? Check out our park events — and keep visiting our site as we add more events closer to May 20th. Pledge to participate and join our movement to encourage children across the country to explore their neighborhood parks and discover science, history, nature, and adventure right around the corner or just across town.
