Playground Tour 2018 Stop #2: Willow Stream Park, Buffalo Grove

For the 5th year in a row we are hosting our Playground Tour to get families out exploring the playgrounds of Lake County. We had a great time at our first stop in Barrington and now we are loading up the van and heading east for our next stop:

Willow Stream Park in Buffalo Grove has something for everyone with walking paths, structures for big and little kids and access to Willow Stream Pool. Natalie gave you a full profile earlier this week.  We are especially excited for this playdate because we will be joining in on their Free Fun Tuesdays! Free Fun Tuesdays are exactly what playground tour is all about, getting out into the park with family and friends to have fun! The Buffalo Grove Park District Squad will be on site with games and activities that will include:

  • Putt Putt Golf
  • Hula Hoops Contest
  • Bag Toss
  • Horseshoe Toss
  • Water Games
  • Disc Golf
  • Kickball
  • Soccer
  • Wiffleball
  • Playground Fun
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Parachute
  • Chalk
  • Bubbles
  • Frisbee
  • Safety Town (must bring your own helmet)

Both Free Fun Tuesdays and Playground Tour are FREE to attend, however you are going to want to pre-register with us for the event because our friends at Y-volution have something special waiting for one pre-registered guest!

One of our pre-registered guests will have a brand new Y-Volution scooter waiting for them at check-in!  All 4 models of Y-volution scooters will be on site for you to try (bring your helmets!) and one lucky pre-registered guest will get to take one home!

But that’s not all! We will have our friends from Animal Quest joining us this time! They will have a variety of their animals for you to visit with and learn about.

This is one playdate you won’t want to miss!
