The activities are supervised by park district staff and geared toward kindergartners through fifth graders.

"This concept blossomed out of the district's strategic planning process which made the nationwide initiative 'No child left inside' a priority. Further, we hope to play a small part in bringing neighborhoods together as well as creating a sense of pride in their local park. This as an easy way to meet your neighbors and allows children to play outside in safe environment that is close to home. We encourage parents/guardians to participate, too," said Lisa Sheppard, recreation superintendent for the district.

The Rec-Mobile is scheduled from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., which is geared to fit in to families busy weekday schedules. For a complete list of Rec-Mobile dates and locations, visit www.gurneeparkdistrict.com/specialevents.
