    Summer Kids in the Park (SKIP) is back, although very different from years past.

    • Instead of in-person activities, we are handing out free to-go activity kits and sack lunches at three of Gresham's parks.
    • Free lunches and activity kits are available to all youth ages 0-18. Please note that kits are geared primarily towards elementary-aged youth.
    • There is no cost to participate.

    Schedule

    Pick up free lunches and activity kits Monday through Friday (except July 5) at these locations/times:

    • Main City Park, 11:30 am, 219 South Main Ave.
    • Red Sunset Park, noon, 2403 NE Red Sunset Drive
    • Nadaka Nature Park, 12:30 pm, 17615 NE Glisan St.

    Note: If you can't make it to one of our parks for lunch, visit the Rockwood Boys & Girls Club 454 SE 165th Ave. Staff will hand out free five-day meal kits Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00 pm throughout the summer.
