Events continue the second Monday of every month through October, all from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

    Starting Monday, June 12, Kids At Castle events will begin, and continue into the fall. Events will be held the second Monday of the month from June to October from 5:30-7 p.m. at Castle Park. These events create an active and healthy community where kids of all ages (0-99) are given the opportunity to connect, explore, and play in nature.

    Here’s the schedule:

    • June 12 - Peppin' it Up @ Castle Park: Join the Kids at Castle team along with their One Vegetable One Community partners. They’ll be celebrating and exploring the selected community vegetable, the pepper, through taste-testing, art, and more. Attendees will receive their own pepper plant.

    • July 10 - Rhythm of Nature: Music surrounds us every day, it just depends on how you look at it. Come to make your own instrument, experience creating music individually and with a group in nature.  

    • August 14 - ReDISCOVER Castle Park: There will be plenty of reasons you want to come join community members of all ages to reDISCOVER what a treasure Castle Park is.

    • September 11 - Down on the Farm: Enjoy an evening as you get up close and personal with local furry friends of the farm.

    • October 9 - Boo Run Run: Along with the Crookston Early Childhood Initiative (ECI), you’re invited to attend the annual Boo Run Run.  Dress up in your favorite costume and come hit the Castle Park Trails for a fun family run with surprises along the way.

    These events are sponsored by the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP), the Crookston ECI, United Way of Crookston, and the Polk County Wellness Coalition. For more information about any of these events, call Kirsten at Polk County Public Health 281-3385 or Leah at 289-3250.
