Adventure awaits children and their families at the Fort Gratiot County Park. The St. Clair County Library System and St. Clair County Parks and Recreation have collaborated to present the new StoryWalk at the park, which is located off of Metcalf Road near M-25.
StoryWalk is a marked path through the park that includes installations of pages from a book. The current book is “Mother Bruce” by Ryan T. Higgins.
Kristin Stiger, Senior Librarian in the Children’s Department at the Main Branch of the Library System, said, “The story begins at the entrance to the play equipment, and then wraps around the trail. The boards are numbered to assist families along the way. The trail out at Fort Gratiot County Park is the perfect length for this: just long enough to get some exercise, but not too daunting for our littlest trail blazers.”
The current story will be up until November 13th, after which a new story will be posted. The Library hopes to make a trip to the park to read a story a recurring event for local families. Information on all activities will be posted on the St. Clair County Library website and social media.
