Getting children outside after these long days of screen time during distance learning can be a crucial step to getting them fresh air, exercise, and a chance to build up their Vitamin D stores by spending time in natural sunlight. While our public playgrounds remain closed, there are still plenty of places to play on our beaches and in our state parks.

The Mendo Parks Website is a fabulous resource for discovering several of the state parks and beaches available to your family for outdoor recreation and exercise.
