Saturday, April 27th is Healthy Kids Day! With this in mind, I decided to put together a list of activities within the county (or just outside) that everyone can participate in to get a little exercise on this special day!
Visit a local park: We are fortunate enough to live in an area where we have a seemingly endless supply of parks!
Whether you want to visit your local playground, hit up one of our state parks, go for a hike and have a picnic, play tennis, or even go fishing, there are plenty of options for you and your family! Don’t forget about your furry friends, too. A dog park is always a fun option as well!
Below is a list of the parks in our area- which are also free to visit, so be sure to check them out!

Indoor fun: If the weather happens to be less than desirable on this date… which, let’s be real, there’s a very good chance of that happening (April in Beaver County is incredibly damp and dreary most days) – there are some fun indoor options nearby as well. Even bowling is a good workout for the old arm, right?

Get wet: Are your kids just dying to jump into some water? It’s a little too cold for outdoor swimming in April, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t hit up an indoor pool!
Beaver County YMCA – Rochester
Sunrise Pool – New Brighton
Pet some animals: This will take you slightly outside the county, but what could possibly be more fun than going to see some furry friends? Living Treasures offers animal feeding and encounters daily!
Living Treasures Animal Park – Butler
Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium – Pittsburgh
Family fun time: (Some are a bit of a drive, but totally worth it!)

I hope something on this list sparked your interest! Don’t wait until the 27th to get out and explore the county. These are fun activities that you can do any time! Is there anything I missed? We’d love to keep adding to the list.
