In addition, “Fun Fridays at Frontier” returns by popular demand to the pavilion at Frontier Park every Friday in July. This partnership between the Community Library and the Parks and Recreation Department features arts, crafts and exercise. Registration is not required, but children must be accompanied by a parent during all activities.
Prosper’s Recreation Coordinator Julie Shivers and Library Director Leslie Scott agree that “Fun Fridays at Frontier” provides the perfect blend of fun activities and outdoor stimulation.
“’Fun Fridays’ get the kids outdoors, away from electronics! Leslie and I thoroughly enjoy hosting these activities, meeting new kids and greeting familiar faces for this casual, relaxed morning of fun, ” said Shivers.
And, once again, Prosper will participate in National Park and Recreation Month in July, by providing a calendar of family events focusing on the area’s parks and recreational opportunities. The month is sponsored by the National Recreation and Park Association.
