For the kids, the Puppet Wagon Shows will be held every Tuesday and Thursday, June 11–July 25. The Penny Carnival, with all activities 5 cents for less, is Fri, July 26, 10:30 am–12:30 pm, at Brookview Park. The Picnic & Music in the Park event is Wednesday, Aug 7 11:15 am–noon, at Brookview Park. Water Days, Friday, June 21, from 12:30–2:15 pm, transforms the big hill at Scheid Park into three water slides. For a few hours, kids can enjoy sliding, DJ music, and puppet shows.
Fifteen percent of Golden Valley (more than 1,035 acres) is dedicated to parks and open space, and the City maintains nearly 50 miles of trails for walking and biking, as well as myriad ball fields, courts, and activity areas.
