This week, we offer some tips from our guest blogger and Regional Property Manager, Tiffany Clement:
As summer nears, most families are itching to get out and enjoy the summer sun. Keeping children entertained can sometimes become costly. Here are a few free or low-cost things to do with your family.
Parks are a great way to get some exercise and run off some energy.
Liberty Park offers a large playground with water features, sports courts, and running track. Tracy Aviary, carousel, paddle boats, and swimming area are also located within the park and can be enjoyed for a small fee. The Chase Home Museum of Folk Art can be visited free of charge and is located near the park.
Sugar House Park is also a great place to spend the day. It has two playgrounds, sports courts and plenty of room to run, picnic, or just sit and soak up some sun.
Wheeler Farm is fun for the younger crowd; it has plenty of free activities and a few extras that can be purchased for a small fee.
The International Peace Gardens have replicas of attractions from 28 countries and also has a playground and picnic area.
Gilgal Gardens is a unique hidden gem that you have to know about to visit. It is located at 749 East 500 South.
