Play Outside! 

 

 

Did you know that tomorrow is National Play Outside Day? What a perfect way to kick off a long holiday weekend, and a great opportunity to get outdoors and explore our local parks. We have beautiful public parks, a disc golf course and the hard-surfaced recreation trail that runs to Rock Creek State Park. Krumm Preserve is just a short drive southwest of town, and has wonderful walking trails and shelters. If you're looking for something different, check out the Grinnell College Golf Course for some outdoor time on the links. 

 

If parks aren't your thing, perhaps taking a leisurely walk downtown would be something you would enjoy. The flowers are still looking gorgeous as the seasons begin to transition to fall. They truly do provide a beautiful backdrop to these - what I anticipate will be - last few summer days. 

 

Tomorrow is expected to be a warm one, so make sure to take water and stay hydrated while you're out exploring! Wishing you all a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend.
