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 a host of local and national collaborators. Next year’s KTP Day will be held on Saturday, May 20, 2017. Watch our short video from 2016 here.

NPT is encouraging children across the country to explore their neighborhood parks and discover science, history, nature, and adventure right around the corner or just across town. Our website can help jumpstart your adventure.
