  • Partner with artists to attract and engage families
  • Partner with a local artist to create a mural or portable mural, with helpers from the community
  • Invite musicians/dancers to share their music/dance with families (an interactive experience is even better, with performance and teaching combined)
  • Hold bird walks and collect data for Celebrate Urban Birds
  • Build nestboxes and nesting platforms to place in your park
  • Partner with a local library to hold book readings for children
  • Partner with a local art gallery to showcase art/photos taken in the park
