Parkway Pals Play Day


May 18, 2019
11:00 AM until 03:00 PM


Kids and their parents are invited to enjoy an array of activities and entertainment, which will include book readings from authors, illustrators and B101’s Jessie Jordan. The park’s lawn will transform into a playing field during a Soccer Shots demonstration, while Silly Joe leads a sing-along and the Geography Lady gives a lesson on world travel. Marty the Moose from the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University will make an appearance along with everyone’s favorite pups on patrol. These meet-and-greet characters will be joined by a real-life Philadelphia Police K-9!

Guests can explore the Children’s Discovery Garden and Boat Pond, which will feature an educational butterfly exhibit made by youngsters enrolled in Philadelphia Parks & Recreation after-school programs. Themed games and activities are planned in conjunction with the exhibit, such as a toddler “caterpillar crawl” and a breathtaking butterfly release. The Earth Fountain will keep kids cool in between these events, while parents fuel up at the newly opened Sister Cities Café. Snacks and refreshments will be offered at an additional cost.

Bring a new or gently used book to donate to the Library in the Park book cart.
