Come and play at the Harlem Big Playdate in the park! You are invited to an outdoor play extravaganza for little ones. Celebrate the power of play and practice important early literacy skills—all while having fun!

Kids ages infant to three years old and their parents and caregivers are invited to explore  different play stations, activities, and sensory experiences that promote a wide range of early learning skills. Come make new friends and learn simple and easy activities that you can recreate at home!

Please note this event is only for children ages 3 and under accompanied by a parent or caregiver. The activities are designed for child and caregiver to enjoy together and every child must be supervised by an adult at all times. We are unable to accommodate schools, daycares, or other groups.
