StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children’s book are attached to yard signs, which are installed along an outdoor path. As you stroll down the trail, you’re directed to the next page in the story.
The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
Dates & Locations:
StoryWalk® will be placed sometime during the first week of each month.

Green Green: A Community Gardening Story by Marie Lamba & Baldev Lamba LISTEN
Green grass is wide and fresh and clean for a family to play in, and brown dirt is perfect for digging a garden. But when gray buildings start to rise up and a whole city builds, can there be any room for green space? The neighborhood children think so, and they inspire the community to join together and build a garden for everyone to share in the middle of the city.
- August – Walking path at Centennial Park
