Great Turnout for Meet-up
So many families came out for our September meet-up, and it was still warm enough to enjoy the fountain. Thanks for coming!
September Meet-up Date
Even though Summer vacation is over and school has started, we can still have fun! Let’s have one more meet-up at the park before it gets cold. Come have fun with other neighborhood families on Friday, September 22nd, at 5:30pm.
June Meet-up Date
We had a lot of fun in May, lets do it again on Friday, 6/23/17. We hope to see you at the park, 5:30pm to dark.
Join us on May 19th!
We have a neighborhood meet-up planned for Friday (5/19) at the park. Come have some fun and meet your neighbors. See the latest newsletter for the details…
November Park Meet-up
This last August, we kickstarted monthly park meet-ups for neighborhood families as a way to get to know one another better and to discuss the future of the Mount Vernon Children’s Park. The first meet-up was very successful, with parents and guardians socializing and kids running around the park and playing. From this, a small committee of neighborhood parents formed and began talking in earnest about improvements and additions that could be made to make our park even more fun! Meet-ups continued for the next few months, falling on the third Friday of each month and starting at 5:30pm.
While we met in the park for August, September, and October’s meet-ups, the weather is getting colder and the days are getting shorter (don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour this Sunday!), so we are moving the winter meet-ups to indoor venues. This month’s meet-up will take place at the newly opened Mt. Vernon Marketplace at 520 Park Avenue on Friday, November 20 at 5:30pm until whenever. Come and join us to meet other neighborhood families! And of course, bring the kids! (We’ve contacted the Marketplace, too, to ask about possibly adding a kid-friendly corner where children visiting the market can play or sit, and were told that it was definitely an idea that they would consider based on space considerations–maybe by November 20, there will be one!) The meet-up is casual–just a time and place to hang out. However, if you are interested in sharing your input in the park, finding out about our future goals for the park, or if you want to volunteer, we’ll be discussing those matters, too, and bringing with us a monthly newsletter to share as well as a Playworld Systems playground equipment catalog that you can browse through to see what kind of improvements we might be able to make in the future.
