I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - County Parks

What: County Parks

Where: Various Locations

Who: All ages

Our view: A nice place to go at this time of year when the weather is usually not too hot and not too cold is the park. County parks are especially nice because they are a little bigger than local parks, and they have often have things that local parks do not. Where we live at least, county parks offer a wide variety of classes for all ages including adults. Classes cover a wide vary area including art, cooking and/or sports. County parks usually have a variety of sports fields, such as, baseball fields and soccer fields. They may have picnic areas.  Picnic area may or may not require a reservation so if you are interested in having a picnic check before you go. Some county parks even have swimming pools and if so, swimming lessons may be available in the summer. Most county parks at least  the ones we have been to usually include at least one playground. These days playgrounds generally include an area for older kids and an area for younger kids. We will be talking more about specific county parks we have been to and like in future Where-To-Go Wednesday posts. In the meantime, if you want to know more about your local county parks, a good place to start is to look up the parks and recreation department for the county where you live or the county where you are interested in finding a park. Another place to go is to ask at your local library, and they can probably steer you in the right direction.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for another Talking Topic.
