BREC and LSU Partner to Provide Active Learning

Playground Kidz Begins Sept. 19

BREC and LSU's Kinesiology Department invite children, ages 6-12, to participate in Playground Kidz from Sept. 19 to Nov. 11 at three BREC parks.

This free program, in collaboration with the LSU Kinesiology Department, teaches children how to use playground equipment as exercising apparatuses. The service-learning students provide homework help in addition to structured physical activity.

Playground Kidz runs Monday through Thursday, rain or shine, at Anna T. Jordan Community Park, 1750 Stilt St.; Ben Burge Park, 9350 Antigua Drive; and Mills Avenue Community Park, 424 Woodpecker St.

Participants must preregister at the center of their choice Monday through Thursday from 3:30-5:30 p.m. For more information, contact 225-292-9200 or email ddrake@brec.org.
