KIDS TO PARKS™ DAY
A NATIONal Celebration of Our Parks
Kids to Parks™ (KTP) Day, a national day of outdoor play organized by National Park Trust in cooperation with 30 national collaborators, was held Saturday, May 20, 2017 and was the largest KTP Day to date!
The numbers are still rolling in and we are confident that we will reach our goal of 1-million participants! KTP Day 2017 included more than 1,700 park events nationwide and over 450 mayors and elected officials have proclaimed the day and joined in the celebration. Even a Senate resolution was passed in April.
Congratulations to our 70 schools as winners of our KTP Day School Contest! Each school – totaling nearly 4,000 preK through 12th graders in 28 states and Washington, D.C. – received a grant to celebrate KTP Day. The full list of winning schools is available here.
