4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

This event is held at Reindahl Park (1818 Portage Road)

Enjoy play-centered, child led activities in the park each week. The library will provide special play equipment to spark your child's imagination. At the end of each event, kids will create a Play Story, drawing and/or writing about their play for that day. Wear messy clothes, bring a water bottle, (optional) bring a picnic dinner or purchase a meal from the "Let's Eat Out" local food carts, and make an evening of it!​ This event is created in partnership with the Madison Parks Division and funded in part by a grant from the Madison Public Library Foundation.

“The physical exercise and emotional stretching that children enjoy in unorganized play is more varied and less time-bound than is found in organized sports. Playtime—especially unstructured, imaginative, exploratory play—is increasingly recognized as an essential component of wholesome child development.”
