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.
"Drop-in” programs allow individuals the opportunity to participate in an activity for a day rather than commit to a full session or season. Examples of drop-in programs we have are sports (such as table tennis, basketball, volleyball, badminton, and pickle ball), music (such as ukulele and drumming), and chess club. “Drop-in” fees vary depending on the activity and are paid onsite, pre-registration is not needed.
