Columbus Playground Tour Schedule 2012

The much anticipated tour schedule is below. Due to the wonderful warmer weather, we are starting it a few weeks early. We will still have a large kick off party in June.

The tour starts at 11am. I try and get their a little early to stake out a spot. I always tend to pack a cooler with lunch for the kiddos and we try and stay most of the day. Thursdays will be our normal tour day- however, keep your eye out for some special events.

Facebook is the best way to get updated, but I will also try and update the website the night before. Once we actually meet in person, I am happy to hand out my phone number if you have any questions. "Like" the Columbus Playground Tour or you are also welcome to friend me on Facebook- Jaylene Henderson. Once I get to the playground, I will try and update the page with where we are, if there were any detours, changes, etc.

Please check the map of where you are going before you leave your house. With these being parks and playgrounds, sometimes they do not have an exact address.
