Looking for a fun (and creative? how about cost-effective?) way to beat the heat with your mini-mes this summer? Check out this fantastic line-up of FREE classes at West Shore Park, sponsored by The Waterfront Partnership. Don’t forget a swimsuit and towel for a cool-off in the Walter Sondheim Fountain afterwards!

Fitness Fusion: Run around, tag your best friend, catch a ball, play with parachutes. This hour of active play and movement is designed to get kids (and their caregivers) up and moving! Perfect for all ages.

¡Hola niños!: Get a jump on second language learning with outdoor spanish language sessions for little ones! Each week will feature new vocabulary through song, dance, movement and play-based activities. Two sessions will be offered: one for kids ages 2-3 and one for kids ages 4-6.

Mini Minds: Make everyday moments magic learning moments for your child this summer at West Shore Park! Join each week for playing, singing, talking, reading and fun play-based learning. These parent-child classes designed to help get your little one ready for school by age 5. Baby and Toddler/Preschooler sessions offered.

Pint-Sized Creativity: Get your pint-sized Picasso out of the house for some creative exploration. We’ll be coloring, painting, crafting, building and more. Activities are designed for preschoolers (with parental assistance) and early elementary school students (independently).

ZumbaTonic: What do you get when you cross the latest fitness dance craze, international and latin music with kids? ZumbaTonic! Kick those wiggles up a notch and bring your kids out to West Shore Park for an energetic hour of fitness. Perfect for kids 2-8 with their caregiver.

… and join them any time there is an OPEN PLAY HOUR! During those times, they’ll have toys, games and kid-friendly activities led by Waterfront Partnership team.
