We are bringing fun activities to a park near you! Meet Me in the Park is a mobile recreation program that provides recreational activities for ages 5 and older at various parks in Pierce County. The location of parks is rotated, in order to serve residents in all parts of Pierce County. 


Participants will meet in small, safe, and Covid friendly groups for an hour each session. Each session is only as large as our current Phase will allow.  Recreation leaders will be on hand each week, rain or shine, to teach a variety of games, crafts, and cooperative play activities throughout the day at different parks. The leaders will supervise participants in the activities during the scheduled session hours only.
