Read & Walk


Walk through Dan Patch Park and read a new picture book by MN author Laura Purdie Salas. Find out if you have the skills needed to be the moon, can you spin like a twilight ballerina, play tug-of-war with the ocean, and light a pathway for baby sea turtles? Check out the  moon and space related activities available in the park:
