Follow Park View Kids Zone on Facebook

The Park View Kids Zone (PVKZ), spearheaded by Angela Strange, has been operating out of the old field house at the Park View Recreation Center for a little over a year now, and during that time they’ve been working hard to set themselves up as a non-profit so that they are in a better position to provide programming to our neighborhood’s youth.

As they work their way through the process, they have done incredible work in the community during their first year. Some of what has been accomplished can be seen on their recently launched Facebook page. Readers may also recall that the PVKZ had an open house on December 16th that included singing and dancing. The YouTube clip below is from that event.

The Park View Kids Zone returns to full programming after the New Year’s holiday. Their January calendar of events is below:

  • Thursdays nights from 6 to 8 p.m. they are starting a “Teens Art Night” at PVKZ. Park View teens will come together with other teens to learn to express themselves through art. PVKZ will turn into an artist studio to give teens a focused creative time. We will also incorporate spoken word and music as we learn to express ourselves in a positive way. If you are a local artist that would like to help or you would like to donate art supplies please contact Mrs. Angela at PVKZ.
  • They will be celebrating MLK day with a day of service in Park View. PVKZ Volunteers and children will be doing a clean-up day around Park View  as their day of service in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Monday the 17th. Participants will be picking up trash, cleaning out closets, and general cleaning at PVKZ. If you would like to volunteer please contact Mrs. Angela at PVKZ.
  • Friday the 28th from 7-9 p.m. PVKZ will be hosting a 1980’s themed Winter Dance! Come dressed in 80’s attire and dance to old-school! The kids love to dance and it should be fun teaching them about the 80’s! If you would like more information contact Mrs. Angela at PVKZ
  • After-school is M-F, 3-6 p.m. FUN Saturday’s are 11 a.m.-4 p.m. every Saturday with lots of fun events planned! Reading Circle is every Wednesday from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
