    Wednesday's Open Play at CAB will be taking a break for the summer.
    Instead, we will be taking advantage of the summer weather and having
    Friday Picnic Playdates from 10am-12pm!  

    Just like Open Play, this is a casual event. If it's lunchtime for your littles, bring a blanket and picnic lunch. Feel free to bring toys to share and bathing suits and towels (the water features are on!).


    The park location will alternate on a weekly basis, so be sure to check the website or Facebook page for the week's details.
