Olmsted Parks Conservancy will be hosting two Free Play events where children are self-directed in interacting with the space, which includes a kid-friendly environment with play materials such as hay bales, cardboard boxes, tarps, rope and more. Free Play helps to develop communication skills, independence, problem solving, creativity, self-esteem, and more. Trained play facilitators will be present to encourage the children and answer questions adults may have about free play in general. Participation is limited to 20-30 kids at any given time. Free Play will take place April 6 from 1-5 p.m. in Cherokee Park (Baringer Hill playground at Alexander Road / Scenic Loop) and April 7 from 1-5 p.m. in Iroquois Park (Sunnyhill playground at the Kenwood Drive entrance near Rundill Road).
