Tiny Tykes Day
May 5 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
 Martin Luther King Jr. Park

Asheville families are in for a fun-filled day during Asheville Parks & Recreation (APR)’s annual Tiny Tykes Day at Martin Luther King Jr. Park from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday, May 5. The free family festival features hands-on experiences and adventures tailored for kids ages 5 and under including tumble and bounce houses, face painting, twisty balloons, craft making, biking, obstacle courses, special guests, train rides, sing-alongs, and more! Admission is free and registration is not required.

toddler train with red blue and green cars“From programs for teens and adult sports leagues to outdoor art classes and low-impact hikes for older adults, we know Asheville is strongest when community members of all ages have the opportunity to be healthy, successful, and supported” according to D. Tyrell McGirt, APR Director. “Throughout the year, we host many toddler discovery programs in parks and at community centers that inspire curiosity, foster imagination, and set the stage for a world where every child feels supported to achieve their dreams. Tiny Tykes Day combines the best of those programs and brings them to beautiful Martin Luther King Jr. Park – with plenty of room to accommodate hundreds of our city’s youngest explorers, artists, and future leaders.”

Designed to encourage critical decision making and patience, APR program leaders will be stationed around MLK Park hosting fun activities to build cooperation and develop motor skills using bubbles, balloons, bikes, bounce houses, dinosaurs, and much more. Bleacher seating is available, but families are encouraged to bring blankets and lawn chairs to stay closer to the action.

Other upcoming special events for toddlers include Toddler Superhero Bash on April 27, Toddler Kickball Extravaganza on May 12, and Toddler Groove Fusion on June 1.

 

Asheville Parks & Recreation

With its oldest parks dating to the 1890s, Asheville Parks & Recreation manages a unique collection of more than 65 public parks, playgrounds, and open spaces throughout the city in a system that also includes full-complex recreation centers, swimming pools, Riverside Cemetery, sports fields and courts, and community centers that offer a variety of wellness-, education-, and culture-related programs for Ashevillians of all ages. With 10 miles of paved greenways and numerous natural surface trails, its complete portfolio acts as the foundation of a vibrant hub for the people of Asheville to connect with their neighbors and explore the natural beauty of a livable and walkable city.

Driven by the promise that Asheville is a better and safer place when everyone from infants to retirees has the opportunity to be supported, healthy, and successful, Asheville Parks & Recreation was the first nationally-accredited municipal recreation department in the United States.
