“Docs in the Parks”- Celebrate the End of Summer With a Special SOCIAL

Frederick, MD -- “Play” is a great way to enhance physical and mental health for everyone. This year the Frederick County Parks and Recreation, Frederick City Parks and Recreation, and the Frederick County Health Department partnered with local medical professionals to promote healthy lifestyles in the community at three major special events. The purpose of this initiative was to connect each member of our community with the amenities and healthy opportunities in our parks. In doing so participants will recreate with others, increase flexibility and creativity, reduce symptoms of depression, stress and loneliness. This is what “Doc’s in the Parks” is all about!

The remaining featured “Docs in the Park” event is scheduled at the Summerfest Family Theater is on Thursday, August 15 in Baker Park by the Bandshell from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Celebrate the end of summer with a special SOCIAL. Enjoy the Diggity Dudes musical performance followed by delicious snacks, interactive physical fitness stations, demonstrations and more. Meet local medical professionals as they host fun activities aimed at demonstrating the health benefits of playing in our parks! This event is free and open to the public!
