Coca-Cola’s America Is Your Park Campaign #TakeItToThePark

The summer is the one season out of the year where we spend an extended amount of time outside.  Pool parties and BBQ's are always on the summer agenda.  Children and adults alike enjoy spending time in the park.  I believe the best memories are made in the carefree summer months of the year.  Why not spend this upcoming weekend in the park with your family having a picnic and throwing a frisbee?



Coca-Cola is encouraging others to get outdoors and rediscover their favorite parks this summer.  In order to make this happen, Coca-Cola has launched the "Coca-Cola's America Is Your Park Campaign.  The campaign is looking for America's favorite park, which will win the title and receive a $10,000 recreation grant.  Please visit Coca-Cola's website to learn more about the sweepstakes. 

Since I don't yet have children I enjoy the park with my dog and my fiance.  We live right by a few small parks where Carolyn loves to run and play in the warm summer weather.  My fiance and I play catch with her and she has a fantastic time.  As much as animals enjoy the park, people do too.  The fresh air is great and it's vitally important to exercise. I always look forward to long walks in the park on weekend days or after work.  It helps clear my mind and de-stress me.  



This is Carolyn's favorite park and luckily it's very close to where I live. Can't you just imagine relaxing here and enjoying the sights and sounds? I always do. Packing some sandwiches or even stopping at Subway beforehand and bringing the meal to the park to have would be wonderful.

There are so many ways to get active in the park with your family this summer.  Bring sidewalk chalk, jump ropes, hula hoops, balls, frisbees, and anything else that can get everyone moving, smiling and having fun. 

Whatever park you go to this summer, make sure it involves making memories that your family won't soon forget.
