Park day

Now that school is back in session, more than ever, you know the kids are ready for an entire day of play! That’s why it’s essential that you don’t miss out on the National Day of Play at Kiwanis Park on Saturday, September 15 from 11 am to 2 pm. Presented by the Hickory Parks and Recreation Department, this is one event that is sure to be an absolute blast for the entire family. On this National Day of Play, the kiddos will be able to do just that – play! But that’s not all, along with exciting games and activities, there will be a touch-a-truck, trackless train, arts and crafts, and, of course, food for every appetite.

Get Ready for Endless Family Fun at the Kiwanis Park in Hickory, NC

While National Day of Play is scheduled to go from 11 am until 2 pm, you and the family can stick around afterward for even more playtime at Kiwanis Park. Now including the Zahra Baker All Children’s Playground and a splash pad, you can let the children get wet and wild while cooling off. This splash pad first opened in July of 2016 thanks to the City of Hickory, the Hickory Kiwanis Club, and the Western Catawba County Kiwanis Club, and ever since, it has been a huge hit with the entire community. With a non-slip surface, your kids can play around, get sprayed, dive under streams of water, run through the mist, and simply have a great time splashing around in the water.

Along with a splash pad for everlasting fun, there are also countless other activities with amenities like a tennis court, basketball court, baseball fields, horseshoe pits, and even a walking trail. Parents, of course, appreciate the onsite picnic tables and convenient bathrooms. Plus, you’ll be glad to know that the park is tailored to children with special needs.
