Are your kids complaining about being bored yet this summer?
If you live in the Portland area, make sure you’re taking advantage of everything that Portland Parks & Recreation has to offer with their Summer Free for All program. The summer Playground in the Park program brings structured and supervised activities to many of the parks in Portland, and some even offer a nutritious lunch to kids ages 0 to 18 (no income requirements — just show up at the specified time and all kids present get lunch!).
There is also a climbing wall that travels around to different parks each week, so be sure and check the schedule to see when it will be at a park near you. To climb the wall, kids need to weigh at least 45 pounds and be wearing closed toe shoes.
