School is almost out and summer is right around the corner! It’s the perfect time to make new friends, get out of the house, and spend some time outside! We would love for you to join us and our neighborhood play groups for our first summer park hop series! Park Hops are free play dates for mamas and kids of all ages! We will be meeting throughout the June and July months at some of the best parks and splash pads in OKC and the surrounding areas! The park hops will each feature fun activities, and are sure to be lots of fun for you and your family!
You will be able to find information on each event on our neighborhood playgroup Facebook pages! All park hop events will be FREE, but please be sure to RSVP on the event page so we can prepare to make each event fun for everyone in attendance. To choose our park hop locations, we asked moms all around the metro for recommendations of their FAVORITE local parks. You’re welcome to come to any and all of our park hop meet ups. We hope you have a chance to meet some new mama friends as well as discover some new favorite outdoor play places around OKC!
