Watch a story unfold as you walk through the park!

What's a StoryWalk®?

StoryWalks® are a way for children and adults to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Pages from a children's book are attached to signposts, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you walk down the path, you are directed to the next page in the story.  

StoryWalks® combine the benefits of physical activity, time outdoors, literacy, and family time!
