New Halloween Story Up Now at Bryant-Mamaroneck Park StoryWalk

The season of witches and goblins is upon us and it’s time to roll out a new story on the Bryant-Mamaroneck Park StoryWalk.   Our Halloween story is “Room on the Broom” written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

The StoryWalk, a partnership between the City of White Plains Recreation and Parks Department and the White Plains Public Library, combines a children's story with a popular walking route.  Children's books are selected, the pages separated, laminated, and placed along a walking path at regular intervals so readers can follow the story as they walk the route.  The StoryWalk is a great way to inspire parents, teachers, and care givers to take young children on a short stroll and introduce them to a new book at the same time.

“Room on the Broom” is the perfect October book for kids. This amusing story is about a friendly witch and her cat who are happily flying through the sky on the witch’s broomstick when the wind suddenly picks up. Off goes the witch's hat, then her bow, and then her wand! Luckily, three helpful animals find the missing items. In return all they want is a ride on the witch’s broom.  But is there room on the broom for so many friends?

This month’s StoryWalk will run through Sunday, November 17th. Look for updates on the changing stories on the Recreation and Parks Department website
.

About the Park:

The Bryant-Mamaroneck Park is located on the corner of Bryant and Mamaroneck Avenues. The park entrance is on the Mamaroneck Avenue side. Parking is available in the City of White Plains Mamaroneck Avenue parking lot (lower level).

Bryant-Mamaroneck Park opened to the public in October 2014. It offers residents a half-mile looped walking trail in a natural park setting. The property has been owned by the City of White Plains since 1950 and was dedicated as parkland in 1988. It had been a long standing goal of the City to utilize the parcel as passive parkland that is open and accessible to the public.
