Welcome to Spring!
7 Fun Things to Do in a U City Park in the Spring
Enjoy a family outing. Pack a few grilled burgers, a salad, some ice cold water, and some fruit in a picnic basket and enjoy some outdoor family time.
Walk your dog…if you have one.
Play catch…with a Frisbee or the ball of your choice.
Take a Tree Walk. U City in Bloom and the Urban Forestry Commission developed a very nice U City tree walk with complete directions. You can access their website from our "Related Organizations" tab.
Take the kids to playground. Get them up and out and moving. Swings, slides, and other playground amenities are a great way for kids to burn off some of that energy.
Go biking or skating. Several of our U City parks provide walking/jogging/biking trails to enjoy.
Relax. Find a nice park bench, just sit under a flowering tree, soak up the warm spring weather and enjoy a little nature!
Attention Tree Lovers! Our friends at U-City in Bloom have put together a tree walk based on work compiled by University City's Urban Forestry Commission. Visit some of the "star" trees in University City. The walk includes a Linden, American Elm, Overcup Oak, Ginko, Dawn Redwood and more. You will find more information at www.ucityinbloom.org/treewalk/
Our parks are the crown jewels of our community. They are where we meet, play, exercise, relax and enjoy the outdoors with our families, friends and neighbors. They give added meaning to our cohesive neighborhoods and bring added life to our dynamic business districts. We encourage you learn about our many parks that have come to mean so much to generations of residents.
And we ask you to help us in our quest to build a greater resource for ourselves, our neighbors and our children.
