UPDATE: Weather looks super rainy, but lightning free! This would be perfect if we lived nearer, but doesn’t seem worth a special trip (aka we’re skipping today). If you’re into rain, there might be others who live closer showing up too. See you next week. Drive safely!
We’re meeting again at McKay Lake Park + Open Lands @ 1:30pm (R8866177, Broomfield, CO 80023). It’s supposed to be rather chilly, actually, so we should be fine here! Definitely bring sunscreen + lots of water.
The play structures are near the southeast parking lot, so that’s the address I gave above. If you’re not on Google, the lot is off of Zuni + W 138 Ave. There’s also a lake with fishing + a bike track with jumps for those with adventurous kiddos. As usual, water, sunscreen + snacks are recommended.
New here? You’re welcome to join our park days! Currently we consistently have 8-12 families showing up each week with kids aged 3-13. Whole families are welcome. We ask that you are a homeschooling family with at least one kiddo in the 5-16 age range.
Into group camping? So are we! A few spaces remain for our two group trips.
We’re trying McKay Lake Park + Open Lands for May. If you hate it, lmk….
