You will be seeing the new Parks and Recreation traveling pop-up a lot more in the future.   In a press release issued by the City of Victoria, “The idea was to put a portable park in a trailer so that we can bring the fun of a park to areas that don’t have access to a park,” said recreation coordinator Gabby Anglin. “We tried to jam-pack as much fun as we could into the trailer.”

If you haven't seen the pop-up park it is pretty awesome.  It is a small trailer with athletic equipment, gym toys, jump ropes, yard games, and other items that can be used to play outdoors.

The pop-up park has been busy lately with appearances at Son Valley Ranch’s Family Outdoor Expo and the Children’s Discovery Museum’s Seussical STEAM Fest, and Anglin said feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. In addition, the Parks & Recreation will continue to partner with community organizations to host the pop-up park.

The pop-up park was made possible by a partnership with Academy Sports + Outdoors, which donated most of the equipment for the trailer.
