StoryWalk® Locations in Central Indiana

StoryWalk® Locations in Central Indiana

Reading, Nature, and Exercise; It’s an ideal combination. When it includes picture books, activities, and a playground, your child’s interest will sky-rocket! StoryWalks are free, self-guided hikes often on paved trails within parks that encourage reading while you walk. Picture books are displayed in mounted frames with one or two pages per frame. Each frame also features a quick question or activity to build literacy skills while you walk to the next page.

The StoryWalk® concept was created by Anne Ferguson of Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark and now appears in each of the 50 states. Here is a list of some our favorite StoryWalks around town.
