Rochester Park and Recreation has a new service!
The Go! Play! Explore! Mobile Recreation Trailer will be traveling to parks and green spaces throughout Rochester this summer to provide fun and engaging outdoor activities.
"It's fun to see all the kids come out and play," said Rochester Park and Rec Recreation Supervisor, Ben Boldt. "Kids, I think their nature is they like to have fun, play, and pick up games quickly and enjoy spending time together and it's been great to see that happen so far."
The goal of the event is to get the community involved and outside.
"We hope to see the different neighborhoods that we travel to embrace the activities," said Boldt. "We try to get the word out there as best we can so people know about it and come out. Again, it's a way that we feel those neighborhoods can come together around an activity and have some fun together, get to know each other, build that sense of community."
Currently, the event is scheduled through August, but it might not end there.
"We have plans of potentially adding some activities that can be played during the fall and winter months," said Boldt. "Hopefully the popularity is there so we can increase it to be a year round offering."
The Mobile Recreation trailer was funded by a grant from the Super Bowl 52 Host Committee.
