As the school year winds down, parents are faced with the challenge of keeping kids active and away from screens.  The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation department has a terrific option starting Tuesday in Bayfront Park.

The Bayfront Family Center officially opens Tuesday, May 29, near the harbor in Bayfront Festival Park.

It's a terrific opportunity to bring your family and friends for a wide variety and recreational games and other fun activities.  All activities are free and equipment is also available to borrow at no charge.

The Bayfront Family Center will be open Monday - Thursday from 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. through September 13.  There will be games and activities available rain or shine.  The center will be closed if there are other special events scheduled in the park.

Bring your family down and check it out.  There will be staff on hand to answer questions and show everyone everything that is available to do.
