Discover picture book adventures as you walk through Hamilton and Lakeside Park by visiting the latest StoryWalks. StoryWalks encourage families to enjoy reading and the outdoors by posting a children’s book – a page at a time – at intervals along a path.

During the warm season, our StoryWalks get a new story each month. What's happening in June?

At Lakeside Park, start at the Deneveu Shelter to read two different books! "Mother Bruce" by Ryan T. Higgins follows the story of a grumpy bear and the goslings who think he's their mother. Then, in "Koala Is Not A Bear" by Kristin L. Gray, learn about Koala and her friends on their first day of camp.

Over at Hamilton Park, in "A Camping Spree with Mr. Magee" by Chris Van Dusen, Mr. Magee and his trusty dog, Dee, find themselves on a camping trip that delivers more than they bargained for. Start on Forest Avenue - the story ends by the playground equipment!

Check out our special summer StoryWalk at Gottfried Arboretum! During the Summer Reading Program, start at the East Lot to read "Explorers of the Wild" by Cale Atkinson, the story of a boy and a bear who love to explore - and when they meet in the woods, their lives change forever.
