Definitely! We have Arcata Park Playdates on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Arcata Park Playdates is a play group for families with children newborn to 5 years. Playdates are held at different parks throughout the month, so families can explore Arcata's parks and playgrounds together. Please note that the children must be supervised by parent/or guardian at all times. The play group is a partnership with First 5 Humboldt and offers a safe and comfortable environment for children and parents to socialize and play. Suggested daily donation is $3.
