If you’ve never taken the kids over to Edwin Warner Park, Fall is the PERFECT time to visit! This year there’s even more of a reason to stop by thanks to the brand new Autumn StoryWalk installation.
When you first arrive you’ll want to park at the Nature Center. We always like to walk to the left and take a detour around the pond and see what’s new. It’s so gorgeous this time of year!
Follow signs for the Little Acorn Trail. That’s where you’ll find the StoryWalk. Keep in mind this isn’t a paved trail, so you’ll want to leave the stroller behind!
This season’s featured book is Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn by Kenard Pak — a beautifully illustrated children’s book about the changing of the seasons from Summer to Autumn.
The best part of the StoryWalk? Being surrounded by so much color of the season while reading about it on your way!
This little hike is perfect for all ages, since it’s a very short loop at just 150 yds. in length. It’s located right next to a little creek and bridge which makes for a very enticing spot for curious kiddos to stop and explore. Be sure to bring a magnifying glass for some extra fun!
For more info on the Little Acorn Trail, be sure to download this brochure from the Parks Dept. before you go. This attraction is available 7 days/week during park hours, from Dawn – 11 p.m. There is currently no end date available for when they will switch out the book selection, but this will most likely stay in place through at least the end of October.
