Brookhaven, GA, November 3, 2016 – The Post Reports, Contributed – The Brookhaven Park Conservancy hosted over 50 children who participated in a Pumpkin Painting play day at Brookhaven Park on Sunday, October 30. This free event was the first of a series of children’s play days designed to provide an unstructured play opportunity for children.
The Conservancy used the event to introduce the Park to neighborhood families with children who may not have visited it previously, as well as re-engaging those who have not visited recently. The Conservancy anticipates the City will complete its master plan of Brookhaven Park when it acquires the back half of the Park from DeKalb County. It plans to assist in engaging neighborhood children and their families in the planning process for a new playground in the Park.
Play promotes healthy child development and unstructured free play is said to be the best type of play for a young child since it allows children to use their imagination and creativity, according to raisingchildren.net. Some children wore their Halloween costumes and professional photographer Debbie Young provided free digital photography to attendees.
The pumpkins, paint, brushes and water were contributed by Kroger Brookhaven and marketing was provided by Erin Mosher of the Mosher Group, a residential real estate brokerage group affiliated with Keller Williams.
