Activities at Hemlock Park to help mark the occasion

DEARBORN – The city will mark the National Trust’s “Kids to Parks Day” on May 21 with several special activities at Hemlock Park, beginning at noon.

One of the many highlights of the day will be the seasonal opening of the park’s splash pad, which features action-automated nozzles and water dispensers. The facility is one of two constructed last year by the city. The other is at Crowley Park.

Both splash pads will open for the season May 21 and provide outdoor aquatic fun daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., weather permitting. Use of the splash pads is free and no pool tags are required.

As part of the festivities at Hemlock Park, arts and crafts opportunities will be available, along with an inflatable ride for younger attendees.

For adults, the day’s activities will include a fitness demonstration, featuring “Punch & Strike,” one of today’s most popular aerobic-type classes.

Everyone will be eligible for giveaways, featuring Recreation & Parks Department T-shirts.

Free hot dogs and refreshments will also be part of the occasion.
