Three Rivers Park Programs Popping Up Across Metro
Three Rivers Park District is partnering up with local cities this summer to bring free pop-up programs to where you live.
“So we have a geocaching pop up today at Sohacki Park. This is just an opportunity to be out in the community. We’re providing free programming out in nature,” said Dre Wakely, Three Rivers Park District education coordinator.
It’s a unique venture by Three Rivers so that even if you’re not near one of its 27,000 acres of parks, you may be near a pop-up program.
“The pop-up programs are free community programs in the community. Instead of having people come to the park to participate, we bring the programming to the people. And we’ll be hosting a number of these through the months of July and August,” said Wakely.
There are an array of free programs offered from fishing to disc golf. The next program is geocaching from 1-6 p.m. at West Palmer Lake Park in Brooklyn Center on Tuesday, July 28.
“We might bring pop up explorer program this summer to an apartment complex in the community. We’re partnering with a library program coming up and we’re going to be beside them as they’re delivering books to the community. So it just depends on what the partner needs,” said Wakely.
