New 'Play Outside Daily' Truck Visiting Parks

Posted: Updated:
A new truck is rolling around the F-M area to encourage kids to play outside. The P.O.D. Truck stands for play outside daily, and that's what staff with the truck will be doing Monday through Friday.

A grant from the Dakota Medical Foundation for $50,000 helped the Boys & Girls Club of the Red River Valley make the truck. Organizers say they hope to engage kids in physical activity they can then play on their own with other friends.

The truck will be in Moorhead on Mondays and Wednesdays, Fargo on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and West Fargo on Fridays. Here is the schedule:

Mondays & Wednesdays: 10am-12pm Queens Park, Moorhead

Mondays & Wednesdays: 1pm-3pm Hansmann Park, Moorhead

Mondays & Wednesdays: 4pm-6pm Romkey Park, Moorhead

Tuesdays & Thursdays: 10am-12pm Village West Park, Fargo

Tuesdays & Thursdays: 1pm-3pm Jefferson West Park, Fargo

Tuesdays & Thursdays: 4pm-6pm Madison Park, Fargo

Fridays: 10am-12pm Herb Tintes Park, West Fargo

Fridays: 1pm-3pm Armour Park, West Fargo

Fridays: 4pm-6pm Service Club Park, West Fargo

Kids will be playing frisbee, tennis, pickleball, flag football and more. A short registration form is required, but all activities are free.
