Bernal Community Park

7001 Pleasanton Ave, Pleasanton, CA 94566, United States


Here’s a list of reasons why visiting your local parks is one of the best you can do this summer.

It’s a free one

Times are hard and fun is expensive. Visiting your local neighborhood parks is free of charge. A little sunblock, a couple of snacks from the pantry, and you’re good to go!

This is healthy.

When children are in the park, they do the healthiest thing that children can do: play! Running and climbing for an hour or two will not only keep your kids healthy, but they’ll get tired of it (planning your park trip before the nap time is a smart move, Mom). But it’s not just healthy for them, it’s healthy for you, too. Take advantage of any walking paths that surround the park, and while the kids are swinging away, you can walk to a healthier place.

It’s good for the city.

Have you seen the Parks & Recreation Show? Although it may be exaggerated, the truth is that there are people in your local Parks & Recreation department who put their hearts and minds to take care of your local parks. Appreciating their hard work is a good citizenship!

It’s a good thing for the Community.

The more parks you visit, the more people you get to know. Many of us parents can vividly remember the days we spent in the neighborhood parks playing with and getting to know other kids in the neighborhood. Times may have changed, but that sense of community is still needed. Frequenting neighborhood parks is a great way to do this.

It introduces your children to the new parts of the city.

Whether it’s the suburbs or the city, there’s a lot of neighborhoods that your kids don’t know very well. By making it a point to visit new neighborhood parks throughout the city / town you live in, you can help introduce your children to other parts of their hometown that they may not be able to visit very often.

It’s good for the environment.

Especially if you can skip the car and walk to the parks in your area. You save the emissions of gas and carbon and stay local. You can also make the trip a learning experience for the kids by packing some garbage bags and cleaning up any garbage you can find in the park for a few minutes. Teach your kids that it’s their neighborhood and their park, so they’re supposed to help take care of it.
