Cambridge is the place to be for active family fun on summer afternoons. Our friends across the river are sending an open invitation to join them at a few of the City of Cambridge’s parks on weekdays (Monday-Friday) for an hour of free fitness classes and a delicious, no-cost lunch. The Cambridge Summer Food Service Program offers lunch to anyone under age 19 from 11:30am – 12:30pm at:
- Danehy Park,
- Hoyt Field,
- Sennot Park,
- Greene-Rose Heritage Park, and
- Gold Star Mother’s Park
The program is running as long as the sun is shining. Balanced meals come from Sidekim Foods of Lynn and are served by friendly Cambridge Recreation Department staff.
Kids will have fun working up an appetite with one of the great group exercise and sporting events the city has planned as part of “Move with Summer Food” inspired by the Let’s Move Initiative. Every week is different and full of fun! One event worth marking on your calendar in advance is the African drums and dancing festival coming up on August 12th at Gold Star Mother’s Park. Check out Cambridge’s interactive map for more information about what’s on the agenda throughout the city’s parks.
Don’t miss the Book Bike while you are at the park. The Agenda for Children Literacy Initiative is getting in on the fun by bringing books to the parks by bike. Find the Book Bike at Greene-Rose Heritage Park on Mondays, Hoyt Field on Wednesdays, and Gold Star Mother’s Park on Fridays to play and read – all for free!
