Since public school has let out I totally expected to see the neighborhood full of kids. You know outside playing or something? But no, I have barely seen a child outside besides my own. Maybe they are lazy? Maybe there is just nothing for them to do…
There is a dilapidated basketball court in Lake Dallas that would be perfect for the kids, but like I said, it’s dilapidated. What a waste of space! It’s at an abandoned school. The school has just been sitting there empty for who knows how many years. There is even a baseball filed, that would really just need to be mowed. It’s sad to see these spaces just being wasted.
The Sprite Spark Parks Project is a multi-year commitment to build and restore play environments where teens, families and neighbors can get outside and be active. The big idea: play, be active, be inspired and have fun.
The campaign kicked off several weeks ago where readers had the opportunity to nominate their courts and we now need your vote to determine which parks will get the funding. If you want one of those refurbished courts to be accessible for your child, all you have to do is head to The Sprite Facebook Page and VOTE!
To help raise awareness for the voting on the project we are having a giveaway!
One Not So Average Mama reader will win a $50 Nike.com gift card!
