Recently Red Wing received a new interpretive trail at Pine Valley Park named the Born Learning Trail. On May 14, volunteers, along with the help of some children playing at the park, placed signs and painted sidewalks.
The trail consists of a series of 10 interactive cognitively stimulating signs that offer playful activities to engage young children and families. The trail provides a rich, educational experience for children and the ability of parents and caregivers to teach their children in a fun way. The signs explain categories like shapes, counting, and the alphabet while boosting brain and body development. Live Well Goodhue County also provided Spanish signs.
The United Way of Goodhue, Wabasha, Pierce County, Dawnbreaker's Kiwanis, city of Red Wing, and Live Well Goodhue County collaborated to bring the trail to Red Wing. Born Learning trails have been around the county since 2005, but Pine Valley Park is the first interactive trail open in Red Wing. Plans include an additional interactive trail in Pepin Woods in the future.
Volunteers from Dawnbreakers Kiwanis and United Way who worked hard to get the trail ready.
