3 Fun Activities to do With Your Alameda Kids This Weekend!

Whether it’s the weekend, break from school, staycation, or just a spontaneous day together, children can get bored, and that means you have to think fast before those pesky boredom blues take over. But where do we take our Alameda Kids to keep the boredom at bay with lots of play? A place to make childhood memories, of course!

Three Great Activities for Alameda Kids

Robert W. Crown Memorial

From the calm and shallow Alameda waters, perfect for kids to swim in and enjoy their favorite water activities, to the fun playground for all ages full of laughter, Robert W. Crown Memorial State Beach, located on McKay Avenue, is the perfect place for making those lasting memories. Their playground is equipped with child-approved favorites like swings, slides, and climbing structures for lots of play! The beach is perfect for traditional water sports, flying a kite, observing nature, beachcombing, and more. There are also many picnic areas and barbecue pits. So you can make a day of your family outing! The family dog is free to tag along, just not on the beach portion. Whether you go for play or to explore, this beach and park combo is perfect for family fun.

Swings And Wings

Does your child enjoy sensory-enriched play? If the answer is yes, then they will love all the opportunities to jump, run, swing, climb, and enjoy the many options for imagination and creative play. Kids from 6 months to 8 years can have fun and stay active, all within a safe and supervised Alameda environment! They’re well-trained, and alert staff gives parents peace of mind. They love knowing someone is there to make sure rules and safe play are being upheld. From special events, birthday parties, or just for fun, your child will smile ear to ear at the site of the colorful sensory play at Swings And Wings, located at 2307 Landing Avenue, Suite E, Alameda 94501.

Jean Sweeney Open Space Park

Sometimes getting out into nature and enjoying the great Alameda outdoors is exactly what our kids (and us) need for a good reset. Jean Sweeney Open Space Park, located at 1925 Sherman Street, Alameda 94501, it’s a great option for those much-needed days! This park is well maintained and full of fun opportunities for the whole family, equipped with childhood memory-building favorites like climbing structures, slides and swings, and lots of picnic areas. There are also sports fields and various courts for sport-loving families as well as lots of open spaces and trails that beg to be explored. Bring the whole family, including the dog, because this park is dog friendly as well!
