Playspaces in Parks

Coming in Spring 2022

To encourage outdoor play and interaction between young children and their caregivers, TalkReadPlay outdoor playspaces will be coming soon to parks throughout Dodge and Jefferson County! These spaces will feature structures with elements to encourage learning math, language, spatial and literacy skills through play.

Born Learning Trails

In partnership with United Way, TalkReadPlay Born Learning Trails contain 10 interactive signs with activities for adults to engage in with young children to turn an outdoor walk into a fun learning experience. Signs are printed in English and Spanish.

Jefferson:The TalkReadPlay Born Learning Trail is located along the Glacial River Bike Trail. To access the trail, park at the Glacial River Trail trailhead on Wisconsin Avenue, just north of the Hwy 26 Bypass Bridge. From there, follow the signs along the trail north.

Watertown Storybook Trail

In partnership with the Watertown Public Library Friends of the Library, the TalkReadPlay Storybook Trail at Brandt Quirk Park in Watertown features a trail with stops to read each page of a book. The trail begins back by the baseball complex on the path next to the railroad tracks and meanders through Lunde Woods. It offers a wonderful opportunity to bond with children by taking a walk and reading a book! The book changes regularly.
