Welcome to the City of Kannapolis Parks and Recreation Virtual Playground! This is your place to find activities to do at home. While we miss seeing everyone in our parks and at our programs, it is important to us to continue to bring the fun to you until we can resume normal programming and events.
Ready? Set? Let's Go Biking: Bike Rodeo Adventure (REGISTER HERE)
Approximately 16 child pedestrians and three child bicyclists under age 15 are involved in fatal crashes each year in North Carolina, and hundreds more are injured.
Adapted from Let's Go NC! A Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Skills Program for Healthy, Active Children, this program is an all-in-one hour of learning and fun. Our goal is to teach and encourage children to practice and develop safe pedestrian and bicycle behaviors while promoting healthy transportation choices and active lifestyles that can be carried into adulthood.
