Following a successful roll out last year Broomfield’s Family Field Day returns on June 5 for an afternoon of all ages outdoor competition.

Broomfield Recreation sponsors the event scheduled June 5 from 4-5 p.m. at Midway Park North. Cost is $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents.

Fitness Supervisor Veronica Mueller said the slate of field-style games provides a unique means for parents and children to stay active together.

“We hope more people come out and enjoy it,” she said.

Held once monthly during summer, Broomfield also will sponsor Family Field Day on July 17 and Aug. 7.

Mueller noted last year Family Field Day was held monthly but on varied days with Sunday proving to be best attended.

“This year they are only on Sunday afternoons,” she explained.

The family-friendly day in the park features stamina-testing competitions such as sack races, water games and relays.

Mueller said people can gather up their children to experience how fitness can be fun for the entire family.

“Get your heart rate up as a family,” she quipped.

Families are requested to pre-register online.

“It’s three (opportunities) to play together before the kids go back to school,” she said.
