Story Trail at Indian Meadows
Experience great children’s stories in a unique way with a walk along the Story Trail at Indian Meadows. The Story Trail is a self-directed learning opportunity which consists of a deconstructed children’s book with pages mounted separately along the .3 mile trail. The trail begins just beyond the park playground. As you stroll down the trail, you're directed to the next page in the story. This is a fun way to promote literacy and exercise for the whole family. The books will be changed periodically.
Stories shared so far: Rosie Revere Engineer by Andrea Beaty; I Am Peace: A Book of Mindfulness by Susan Verde; The Family Book by Todd Parr; Little Lily and Eddie the Earthworm by Chad Currin; and A Fox Found a Box by Ged Adamson.
Thank you to the Glenville Rotary for the installation and maintenance of this fun addition to the park!
