Program Details


Nature Play Days (summer schedule)
Every other Friday from 1 to 3 pm
Sycamore Park

Come by anytime between 1 and 3 p.m. for open-ended creative play in the Park. At Nature Play Days, we offer unstructured activities to help kids make friends, play, explore, and learn about the world together, like many of their parents and grandparents did as kids. It’s intended to encourage meaningful experiences in nature, which is not just fun, it’s great for children’s health and learning!

Throughout the summer, our nature play group meets every other Friday at Sycamore Park. It’s ideal for ages 3 – 14 but all kids are welcome. Free and no registration required. Held rain or shine but will be canceled in cases of severe weather! Check back here for weather-related updates.

Meet at the Riverview #2 Shelter or the Sycamore Woods Shelter at Sycamore Park. We’ll also have a sign out so we should be easy to find!

Yoga in the Park
Saturdays
Sycamore Park

Let your stresses wash away and enjoy the healing power of nature during community yoga sessions at Sycamore Park every Saturday in June through September 17. This morning practice is a cross between a Slow Flow Gentle Yoga and a Beginning Yoga practice with modifications to suit different experience levels. Practicing yoga in a group is an excellent way to help others with their practice and get consistency in yours! Let’s breathe together with certified yoga instructors from East Cincy Yoga as our guides!

Adults and teens from beginner to advanced are welcome! Please bring a blanket, yoga mat, water and any other optional props you like to use (such as yoga blocks or straps). Reservations are NOT required but they are appreciated. If you have any questions, contact Lori at East Cincy Yoga at 513-331-9525.
