Have you started the Visit Every Park (VEP) Challenge?
With 163 parks in Ann Arbor’s parks system, we are thinking you may not have been to all of them. But what if we challenged you to get out and see how many parks you can get to this summer? We invite you to embark on a Visit Every Park Challenge. Get outdoors, explore and discover a new park space you’ve never been to before and track your journey. Now more than ever, parks are an essential way to connect to your community. When embarking on this journey, remember to respect everyone’s right to spend time in our public spaces. No matter the color of your skin, ethnicity, income level, age, gender, or ability, parks are available and accessible for all. Check out the attached packet and visit our webpage for details.
