What is a StoryWalk®?

A StoryWalk® literally combines a story and a walk. It is a way to combine physical activity with literacy. Pages from a book are converted into signs that are laid out around a park or along a trail. This allows families to walk from sign to sign and read as they enjoy the outdoors.

Where is StoryWalk®?

Bowie's first StoryWalk® is located at the Blacksox Tot Lot off of Mount Oak Road (near Aloha Place) in Bowie. A second StoryWalk® was installed January 2023 behind City Hall at Centennial Park. 

The current book for the StoryWalk® at Black Sox is Have You Thanked An Inventor Today? by Patrice McLauren The current book at Centennial Park is The ABC's of Black History  by Rio Cortez. The books will be changed in late March.

StoryWalk® was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and has been developed with the help of Rachel Senechal of the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.
