Four Activities to Enjoy in Robinson and Moon This Spring
Here is a list of fun ways to celebrate the arrival of the first day of spring.
Celebrating the arrival of spring with your family and friends can be really fun and refreshing after a long winter. Now that the first day of spring has arrived and the weather is finally improving, it's time to break free from cabin fever, get some fresh air and enjoy fun outdoor activities.
Here are five fun ideas to try in Moon and Robinson:
1. Take to the trails. Explore a trail near you including the Montour Trail, or the network of trails maintained by the Hollow Oak Land Trust.
2. Zip to the zoo or your local wildlife or bird sanctuary. Beat the summer crowds and enjoy a visit to the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium or the National Aviary. You may find the animals are outside and more active as they emerge to enjoy the warmer weather too. You'll enjoy the visit even more if you bring some binoculars, which you can purchase at Dick's Sporting Goods.
3. Start a garden. Now is the time to get your garden beds ready for planting by putting down compost. New to gardening? Inches Nursery, Fratangelo Gardens Landscaping or Phelps Nursery can help you build your garden beds and offer advice on which flowers and veggies will do well in your climate. And kids can help start the garden too by planting seeds indoors in empty egg cartons that can be transferred outside into your garden beds in just a few weeks.
4. Go fly a kite. The wild wind makes spring an ideal time to enjoy kite flying at Clever Park.
