Safe Summer Nights - Adaptive Recreation @ Bridge View School

Event Date: 
06/27/2017 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Adaptive Recreation provides a comprehensive recreational program for Saint Paul residents of all ages who have physical and/or developmental disabilities. Since its inception in 1976, Adaptive Recreation has evolved from offering primarily recreational activities to providing educational, social, cultural, and recreational services. In addition to specialized activities, Adaptive Recreation provides opportunities for individuals with disabilities to become integrated into programs that are available to the majority of the public. The program strives to provide its participants with skills needed to successfully participate in community-based recreation programs and encourages them to pursue opportunities for growth.

The free, public events will feature food, activities for children and ample opportunities for attendees to meet their Saint Paul police officers. The department will also bring its horse, K9 and motorcycle units to the cookout—and the BearCat vehicle, which is always popular with kids, will be there, too. Bouncy houses and climbing walls have also been known to appear, thanks to Saint Paul Parks & Recreation. 

Food for the event is donated by the Safe Summer Nights organization, a group of businesses and volunteers who are dedicated to making Saint Paul a safe place to live, work and play. The Safe Summer Nights program started three years ago as a way to provide opportunities for police officers to become acquainted with residents of the neighborhoods they serve over a meal rather than during times of trouble.
