Adventures with Andi: Park Hopping

July 5th is National Hop-A-Park Day. It encourages kids (and adults!) to get outside, play, and visit local parks. In anticipation of this day Andi’s adventures have taken us to different parks across northeast Iowa.

This week we explored Mikkelson Park in New Hampton. Dubbed “Home of the Wooden Wonderland”, this park truly was wondrous! The wooden park is fun for kids young and old. In addition to the Wooden Wonderland, this park features picnic shelters, a swimming pool (with water slide!), campground, baseball fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, sand volleyball, a fitness trail, and even a disc golf course.

Check out more on this adventure with Andi on the Food and Fitness Facebook page. We will post information and photos from our favorite park adventures. Swap screen time with green time and enjoy a local park today!
