City of Nampa invites community to walk story trail at Lakeview Park Oct 1 at noon
Thursday, October 1, 2020
The City of Nampa invites the community to walk the story trail at Lakeview Park at a ribbon cutting Thurs., October 1 at noon. The story trail is an activity that encourages children and families to read while being engaged with physical activity. It offers reading stations strategically placed along a walking path that is approximately one-half mile in length.
“I am very excited to be officially launching this program for our community which encourages physical activity and reading. In addition to physical activity, the story trail gives us an opportunity to send out positive messages of hope, resilience and gratitude for our community to enjoy in celebration of 2C Kids Week,” said Mayor Debbie Kling.
The story trail project is managed by the Nampa Parks and Recreation Department and the Nampa Library and was installed in late 2019. Bilingual reading material will be exchanged periodically to provide a variety of reading opportunities for all ages in our community.
The story trail is located in Lakeview Park at 1304 7th St. N. in Nampa. Funding for the story trail project came from a grant received from St. Luke’s Children’s Healthy Lifestyle Grant and the funds received from the Mayor’s Walking Challenge which is donated from High Five! Children’s Health Collaborative, an initiative of the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health.
