JMB Summer Park Hop: Boone Park

Join us in Avondale at beautiful Boone Park on Thursday, June 14 from 9-11am for our first stop on our Park Hop series! Spanning seven blocks and covered in beautiful historic trees, Boone Park offers plenty of room to play, including one of the city’s most unique playgrounds. Our Park Hop will be held at the playground off of St. Johns Avenue at Van Wert Street, and we have so many wonderful partners joining us!

The Hyppo enjoys making their foods, and they hope you find them delightful!
