In just one week of community engagement, Three Rivers teams visited six Brooklyn Park Mobile Recreation locations on Monday and Thursday, a Brooklyn Center Community Center camp on Tuesday, a St. Louis Park Playground program on Thursday, and three Bloomington Park Playground sites on Friday! On Wednesday, we also had one team working with the Explorer Camp students in Edina, and another crew leading a puppetry program with students at a Dayton mobile home community serving nearly 250 families! On Thursday night, our Parks On the Go van and bike riders participated in the Earle Brown Days Parade in Brooklyn Center, at Hyland on Sunday for a 5K hosted by our partners in the Kenyan immigrant community! Here’s a link for more information.
