Officials with both the Parks and Recreation Department and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department invite the community to take part in the annual National Kids to Parks Day on Saturday.
The event will be held at Chuck Heinrich Park, located at 10899 Officer Andrew Barcena Drive, in Northeast El Paso; from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
National Kids to Parks Day is a free event designed to encourage children and families to visit a city, state, or national park to improve their health and fitness while connecting to nature through outdoor activities.
During the eight annual event, children can do some hiking, archery, fly-casting and other activities.
The national celebration allows children to explore parks and public lands while learning about park stewardship, outdoor recreation and the importance of physical activity.
