Born Learning Trail

by: Julianne Yacovone 6 years ago

Our department has been making many improvements to Magic Island recently, so when we were approached by United Way of Central West Virginia about the addition of a Born Learning Trail we couldn't turn down the opportunity. Born Learning Trails are focused on promoting physical activity and early education in young children. The trail will consist of ten signs with activities and games that go along with the signs. The colorful games will be painted on already existing sidewalk.

The trail will start by the playground and lead toward the far end of Magic Island, away from the playground and splash pad. The United Way of Central West Virginia is putting Born Learning Trails in several counties in the state and we are fortunate to have one at one of our parks. The Born Learning Trail will be installed on Magic Island on the United Way's Day of Caring September 20th.
