Story Hour at the Conservatory

Like books and want to keep the kids busy for an hour in a beautiful park like setting? Then this is definitely at great idea! You can do this even if its raining! But if the sun comes out in the afternoon, skip on over to the great water park and playground at Wright Park. Get the kiddos educated, crafted and played out and have a peaceful afternoon when you are all done!  If the kiddos are too young to read on their own, add this to their list of books read through the Tacoma Library Summer Reading Event. Pack a lunch and make it a great frugal event…

Parking around Wright Park can be tricky with all the permit only parking.  So watch for the signs, and ENJOY!~

Thursday (11:00am – 12:00pm)

Bring the kids to enjoy stories, art and science projects among Seymour Conservatory’s beautiful flowers. Bonnie Beaudoin leads the group in an hour of fun!
