Nienhuis Park and Ray Harral Nature Center will host two events celebrating National Kids to Parks Day on May 21.

Kids to Parks Day is a national day of outdoor play celebrated annually on the third Saturday in May. The event is in its 12th year and is in coordination with the National Park Trust and Broken Arrow Parks and Recreation and its purpose is to encourage people to discover and explore the outdoors at local, state, and national parks.

Mayor Debra Wimpee signed a proclamation declaring Saturday, May 21, as National Kids to Park Day in the City of Broken Arrow.

“We have awesome parks and trails here and we’re still creating even more to improve the quality of life in Broken Arrow,” Wimpee said. “This is an opportunity to bring more awareness to what we have here.”

Nienhuis Park, 3201 N. 9th St., will offer relays, yard games, and more from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Ray Harral Nature Center will host a Kids to Park Day Scavenger Hunt. Participants can pick up the Scavenger Hunt information at Ray Harral Nature Center, 7101 S. 3rd St., from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“I want to encourage everyone to come out to Ray Harral, Nienhuis, or pick one of your favorite parks in Broken Arrow and spend the day on May 21,” Parks and Recreation Department Director Matt Hendren said.

The Broken Arrow Parks and Recreation Department manages more than 800 acres of public land with 41 parks throughout the City.
