Parks make my life better because it gives my children a safe place to play. Playing at the park gives my children an area open to run, exercise, and meet new friends. Sometimes lifelong playmates can be made by meeting at the park. On a nice day we as a family can call our friends and cousins and have a picnic and play date at the park. Having celebrations at the park has been something I have personally enjoyed since I was a child. I had several birthday parties at "A" street and "Cop" park. Many years later my children have had the pleasure to go to birthday parties at several of the wonderful parks in Taft. I love going to parks even as a mother and a wife there is something still exciting about taking my kids to the park I often find my self racing to the top of the slide and going down as fast as I can.
