Clement Park

There's still time to catch a free outdoor music show through Foothills Park and Recreation at Clement Park! Every Thursday from 7-8:30pm you'll find a variety of different musical talents to enjoy as you relax in the park. There are three more weeks left of the Summer Entertainment Series. If you're looking for day time events, look no farther!

Clement Park spans just about the entire area between Pierce and Wadsworth Blvd. on Bowles Ave in Littleton. The 60 acre Johnson Lake is a main attraction with 1.4 miles of lighted, paved trail tracing it's border. You'll find people fishing, running, biking, and walking around the lake any hour of the day. This expansive park also has several playgrounds, almost 20 shelters, a skate park, horseshoe pits, tennis courts and much, much more!

If you live in south suburban Denver, Clement Park is a great meeting place for families with kids. You can reserve a shelter for a family gathering or birthday celebration. Or you can just meet up with a girlfriend to push strollers around the gorgeous lake. It is easy to find and the parking is abundant. Because the park sits just behind the shopping area at Bowles and Wadsworth, you could also plan on meeting up for dinner or a coffee followed by a nice walk - I've done this more than once!

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Butterfly Pavilion

Of all the child-focused exhibits I wish I could visit weekly, Butterfly Pavilion is number one. I could spend hours in the rainforest-like room where butterflies dance through the air, lush vegetation sprawls from every corner, and a delightful assortment of other tropical animals make their home. You can meet Rosie, the resident tarantula and stroke a horseshoe crab as a wonderful side-light to your Pavilion trip. (Is there a child's birthday in your future? The Butterfly Pavilion is available for parties!)


The Sunset Stroll, a monthly event, gives you a more exclusive tour where you will see activities not seen during the daylight hours. A reservation is necessary. The Butterfly Pavilion is open seven days a week and summer is a great time to go! Schools are mostly finished with their field trips and you can walk the outdoor nature trail. Everyday, new butterflies are released between 12:30 and 3:30pm, and there are great spots to have lunch, so plan to make a day of it!

Make a Difference: Black Stallion Literacy Program

Although it's hard to pin down our very favorite summer activity, one would have to be our afternoon with the Black Stallion Literacy Project. I was unfamiliar with the program until it was brought to the HoneyBear Tree Preschool at our church and my children attended with other children from the community. The Black Stallion Literacy Project (BSLP) is a program that is well represented around the front range in Colorado, but extends across the country from it's roots in Florida.

Born of a family heritage in 1999, BSLP has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of children across the nation. The purpose and goal of the organization is clear on their website:


"The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation is an innovative partnership of educators, businesses, volunteers, education foundations, and staff members focused on promoting literacy through the winning combination of live horses and books by Walter Farley. The program is based on the classic books of Walter Farley an…
