Trail Tales

“Trail Tales” transforms the pages of a children’s storybook into signs placed sequentially along the walking trail at Riverside Park. “Trail Tales” will be moving to different walking paths throughout the City of Beloit. “Trail Tales” was created as a way for people of all ages to combine physical activity with books to help build children’s interest in reading while encouraging physical activity.  Through this experience we hope to encourage a lifelong love of reading and the great outdoors.

Our first “Trail Tale” is “How do dinosaurs stay friends?” by Jane Yolen at Riverside Park. The book will start near Turtle Island and will work its way around the lagoon finishing on the east side of the Harry Moore Pavilion. QR Codes are on both the first sign as well as the last sign. This code will take you directly to our website for fun activity and coloring sheets you can do at home!

Be sure to stay up to date with where “Trail Tales” will be next on our Facebook page and here on our website!

Thank You for participating in our Trail Tales Experience at Riverside Park!
