Dads and kids have fun in sun

Albany Extra - - News - Shan­non Smith

The Al­bany Men’s Re­source Cen­tre spread joy by cel­e­brat­ing fa­ther­hood with its third Dads and Kids Day at Eyre Park.

Hun­dreds of fa­thers, grand­fa­thers and other male role mod­els spent Satur­day play­ing out­doors with the chil­dren in their lives.

Grant West or­gan­ised the morn­ing and said the day was the fi­nal of the se­ries un­til the weather warmed up again.

The day aimed to help dads and chil­dren in­ter­act in a safe and fun en­vi­ron­ment, im­prov­ing men­tal health and so­cial skills.

With Jamie the Clown, a bouncy cas­tle and a va­ri­ety of out­door games, the col­lab­o­ra­tion with YMCAWA Play in the Park proved a suc­cess.
