Storywalk in the Park

The City of White Plains Recreation and Parks Department, in partnership with the White Plains Public Library, is pleased to introduce StoryWalk at Bryant-Mamaroneck Park. The StoryWalk combines a children's story with a popular walking route.

Children's books are selected, the pages separated, laminated, and placed along a walking path at regular intervals so readers can follow the story as they walk the route. The StoryWalk is a great opportunity for parents, teachers, and caregivers to provide a fun and healthy activity for young children. Mayor Roach said, “We hope that families will return to the park regularly to enjoy the changing stories on our StoryWalk and in doing so, get the added benefit of experiencing the park during different seasons.”

The first story that will be featured is “Stuff! Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” by Steven Kroll, a perfect story to kick off Earth Week! Pinch is a pack rat who does not want to give up the possessions that are cluttering his house, but when he finally is persuaded to sell them at a neighborhood tag sale, he discovers the beauty of recycling. Includes tips on “reducing, reusing, and recycling.”

This month’s StoryWalk will run from Saturday, April 18, through Friday, May 22. The Bryant-Mamaroneck Park is located on the corner of Bryant and Mamaroneck Avenues. The park entrance is on the Mamaroneck Avenue side. Parking is available in the City of White Plains Mamaroneck Avenue parking lot (lower level).
