Adults and children reading a book at the Evergreen StoryWalk

StoryWalk®

The StoryWalk® at Evergreen Park, 2700 N. Woodland, is an activity families can enjoy together. This interactive attraction pairs literacy with physical activity. There are 20 stations along the walking path at the park, each one containing laminated pages from a children's book. Read the whole book with your child and ask guided questions about what they read, provided at the last station of the StoryWalk®.

StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson in Montpelier, Vermont.
