Play Day on the Atlanta BeltLine

Come Join us at the 2016 West End Park Play Day!

Free neighborhood festival at West End Park to include a variety of fun activities, music, and games to promote healthy, active living for adults and children of all ages.

This event has passed.

Following the Westside 5K, everyone is invited to stay for our second Play Day of 2016. Play Days are free, fun-filled days of sports, fitness and education where local coaches and trainers come together to facilitate activities, drills and games for a variety of sports. Play Days are presented through the Atlanta BeltLine’s partnership with Atlanta ContactPoint, a nonprofit established to engage children and adults through the power of play.

The Play Day will get started at the conclusion of the race, probably around 9:30 am. West End Park has a covered basketball court and field and that’s where the basketball, street hockey, and fitness classes will take place. Rugby, soccer, flag football, golf, and kickball will be played on the open field.

Health education and healthy snacks will be provided by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Kaiser Permanente, Peach State, West End BeltLine Farmers Market, and Healthy Heart Coalition. Fitness classes will be provided by Ten-Again, Kim Armstrong, and Pink Panther. Bearings Bike Shop will provide bicycle education as well. Culinary Kidz will provide healthy meals and  Zion Moore will provide some great music.

Late Update:  Akbar Imhotep (pictured below) from The Wren’s Nest will be telling stories at 10:30 am and again at 12 Noon (30-minute sessions) at this Saturday’s Play Day. Akbar, a recipient of the Governor’s Arts and Humanities Award, helped establish the storytelling program at The Wren’s Nest and has been telling stories for more than 30 years. Akbar will tell Brer Rabbit stories as well as other African America folktales. The Wren’s Nest is the oldest house museum in Atlanta and the former home of Joel Chandler Harris, creator of the Uncle Remus character.
