WBUUC Summer Park Days are an open invitation to families of all ages to connect in intergenerational community on weekdays during the summer.

These informal gatherings begin on June 15th and are a great opportunity to get to know other WBUUC members who live right in your own backyard. Families who participate in Park Days can attend as often as their schedule allows, and there is no need to register in advance.

Each week, WBUUC members and friends will be greeted by a park host; just look for our banner!
