Temple City to Celebrate Parks Month With Activities Throughout July

Three free events for families will take place at Live Oak Park on July 9, 26 and 30.   

TEMPLE CITY, CA (June 29, 2019)—This July, Temple City will commemorate Parks and Recreation Month, a national tradition since 1985, with a trio of family-friendly events designed to highlight local outdoor spaces and recreational offerings.

All three events are free and set to take place at Live Oak Park, located at 10144 Bogue St. Bringing the entire family is encouraged, as each event has been created with participants of all ages in mind.

This summer’s events include:

Family Fun Night: Fly A Kite!; Tuesday, July 9, from 6-8 p.m.
Launch a kite and enjoy some high-flying entertainment, arts and crafts (think kite-making and -decorating), games and even an old-fashioned pie-eating contest. Additional competitions will see contestants vie for titles such as “Highest-Flying Kite” and “Longest-Flying Kite.” Free hot dogs and ice cream will be available while supplies last.

Neon Night Walk; Friday, July 26, from 7:30-9 p.m.
Live Oak Park’s half-mile walking path will transform into a neon wonderland at this colorful after-hours event. Participants are invited to wear their favorite neon clothing and accessories before taking to the illuminated walking path, which will feature four stops lit by blacklights, plus music and other entertainment. Free glow sticks, bracelets and face paint will be provided.

Bark at the Park; Tuesday, July 30, from 6-8 p.m.
Polite, leashed dogs are welcome to enjoy a number of canine-friendly activities, including a doggie fashion show. Vendors will also be on-site selling dog-specific goods and services. Dogs must be leashed at all times.
