One of my all time favorite brands Coca-Cola is on the hunt for “America’s Favorite Park”! And, a park in your area could win the coveted title and $100,000. But it starts with you going outdoors with your family and getting active. We did just that!
For a quick picnic we threw some drinks in the car and picked up some Subway sandwiches on the way to the park. I love this park because of all the trees and shaded area. Even for late afternoon in Texas it wasn’t too hot.
Before we even got situated Bobby had already climbed up on the bench and fallen off. Poor little guy. Some food cheered him up though!
And then it was play time! The first thing my girls wanted to do was throw the Frisbee. Sun or no sun they ran everywhere chasing that thing!
The boys? Well they just wanted the balls!
Little Jason claimed this one as his own. He found a way to play ball by himself, just throw it up the slide and it comes right back!
Joy has always been a monkey! 🙂
And this little guy got plenty of exercise climbing around the jungle gym besides playing ball.
You can help your favorite park win big in the Coca-Cola’s America Is Your Park campaign! The winning park will receive a $100,000 recreation grant to be used for improvements, while 2nd and 3rd will receive $50,000 and $25,000 grants, respectively. There will also be a $15,000 wildcard grant awarded to a lucky park chosen randomly from the remaining 25 spots on the leaderboard.

The perfect family day at my park is taking a lunch and enjoying the small water park. Or even better is enjoying a town even at our local park in our small town. Like the car shows.

FROLF!! we love it! frisbee golf is too fun, and you can play in around the whole park, we do a nature trail hike as well!! looks like fun where you were! and yeah, subway is soooo good =)
I know my sons would love to take their water guns or water balloons to the park.
My daughter would love to bring a bubble machine along to catch bubbles.
We are blessed to live close to some state parks as well as just little local town play parks. One of our favorite family day park outings would be to go to local state park to hike, picnic, and enjoy the wildlife as well as the many different waterfalls. Another idea would be to take the 6 children to a local park, take water guns, snacks and drinks for then and let them okay til they are too pooped to play. Lol follow up with an ice cream come on the way home.
Our perfect day at the park would be packing a lunch and enjoying the splash pad nearby.

Our favorite park has some nice shady picnic benches, too, so on a nice day, we’ll meet my husband there for a picnic dinner. Then the girls love to play “hot lava tag” on the playground equipment–no touching the ground or you’re out!
Our perfect day would be to play,eat and have fun together! We love to play with water guns and that is always a hit!

Our favorite family day at the park is to enjoy super splash waterslide fun.
When I ask my kids if they want to go to the park, they tell me that they want to go to their grandparents park. My parents got all the playground equipment from a school that was getting new stuff. They have a swimming pool too. My mom and brother built a “Little House” that has electricity and bunkbeds. So our idea of a favorite day at the park is swimming, playing on the playground, a cookout and spending the night in the little house. Great memories! 🙂
I would pack a picnic lunch/drinks and grab the beach bag filled with towels,sunscreen ect. and head for the pool at our local park to spend the day swimming, with lunch in the picnic area then later grab some sno cones or ice cream at the pool snack bar and then a little playtime on the playground before heading home. This would be my favorite way to spend the day at the park.
we love to have a picnic lunch
The perfect family day at the park would involve a healthy picnic followed by some rollerblading!

Oh for use it would be packing up a picnic lunch, and going to one of our local parks! Carter would HAVE to bring along his blow up bowling pins and ball! He is only 3, but LOVES to bowl! He wants to use that all the time outside! So, we would swing and go on the slides, and do some inflatable bowling! 🙂

We love to bring a picnic (usually subway..lol) and hang at the park.
Linda Kinsman says
We were just talking about having a picnic so adding Subway sandwiches and would be perfect.

We like to bike to different parks
A park with bike trails is one of our favorite places to go – we have one here that also has a nice mist fountain and is also right by a lake.
