Playground Safari Outpost #3: Central Park-East, July 13th {Grayslake}

Lake Victoria in Kenya? No, we seek much wilder landscapes! Our next outpost on the Little Lake County Playground Safari presented by Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital heads to Grayslake on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at 10:00 a.m.

We’re leading our caravan across the grassy plains of Central Park in Grayslake to the formidable east side of the park.  There you will find a playground oasis…the natives call the watering a hole a “splash pad,” but we call it fun!  Tracy gives you all the details about the east-side Central Park playground in her recent playground profile. Don’t forget your swimsuits and towels!

The rangers from the Grayslake Park District have acquired strange and mythical beasts from far away lands.  These furry monsters are far from savage, and enjoy cookies and hugs.

The park district will further initiate all our young explorers with the application of ancient tribal tattoos (the temporary kind.)
