Wellington to reopen playgrounds Thursday after Hurricane Ian

After closing for a day to let the worst of Hurricane Ian’s effect move on through, Wellington’s playgrounds reopen Thursday, a village spokeswoman told me today. Athletic fields remain closed.

All waste pickup also will resume as regularly scheduled.

While there might be some folks out there who are thinking, “Yay, my trash can go out!” I’m guessing far many are like me and just want to find a place to take your child and your dog, possibly at the same time. I can tell you that once the sun is shining tomorrow, we will be at Tiger Shark Cove Playground with my son. This could be especially good news for parents of school-age children, with Palm Beach County School District schools and activities canceled Thursday.

In Royal Palm Beach, the Rock-N-Fall Festival that was scheduled for this weekend has been rescheduled to Oct. 8-9 at Commons Park. The hours are 1-9 p.m. Oct. 8 and 1-7 p.m. Oct. 9.

How are you keeping your kiddos busy while they’re out of the school and stuck in the house? We’ve resorted to a mix of ABCMouse, coloring, Play Doh, walks around the neighborhood when the rain stops and, thanks to an early birthday gift from family, a sweet marble racing set-up Casey received for his fourth birthday.

Success! You're on the list.
