Hi there! 
 Welcome to PARK365 News, a seasonal, short e-newsletter to keep you up to date on happenings in one of our favorite places in Richmond: PARK365.   
PARK365 is Voted the Best!
We know PARK365 is a winner, but it’s nice to hear it from everyone else, too! PARK365 was voted Best Community Playground by readers in Richmond Magazine’s 2023 Best & Worst survey. This award exemplifies SOAR365’s commitment to the community, our program participants and their families.   

With more than two acres in Northside Richmond, PARK365 is a beloved gathering place for families and children. PARK365 is specially designed to accommodate those with disabilities and focuses on inclusive fun for everyone. 

We hope to see you over the holidays and school breaks here at PARK365, and please share this award-winning space with your friends and family! 
Fall & Winter Notes
With cooler weather and earlier sunsets, there are a few seasonal adjustments to PARK365’s hours and amenities.

Please take note: 

The water in the water fountains and the water play feature is off until spring. 

PARK365 continues to close at dusk, which is about 5:00 p.m. At that time, the gates will be locked, so please plan your visit accordingly. 

Only morning parties (10 a.m. - 2 p.m.) are scheduled during the winter months. (And no parties on Mondays, due to standard later opening time for maintenance.) 

Remember that PARK365 opens on Mondays at 11 a.m. (and at dawn the other days). 

We all love sidewalk chalk, but our maintenance department kindly requests you not use it in PARK365.  
Pickleball Fun
Have you ever walked all the way around PARK365? Did you know there’s a great walking path with exercise stations that lead to a basketball court? Our participants and visitors alike have fun shooting hoops there… and this fall, SOAR365 employees and participants learned how to play pickleball! We all had a (wiffle) ball learning and laughing.
Let's Party!
Having a winter party? Want to get outside? C’mon over to PARK365! You can reserve the pavilion and patio tables this winter for the morning time slot: 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. each day, except Monday.  
PARK365 Hours
PARK365 opens at 11 a.m. every
Monday so that our groundskeeping and maintenance crews can safely
mow the grass, clean the park and
make needed repairs. Please check
our website and PARK365’s Facebook page for park updates.  
Monday: 11 a.m. to dusk (5 p.m.)
Tuesday–Sunday: dawn to dusk (5 p.m.)
We love seeing everyone in the park and playing!
If you love PARK365 and want to share your happy moments with us, email photos to soarcomms@soar365.org so we can feature them in our e-newsletter.

Support PARK365
PARK365 is free to visitors, but not to us. It costs a lot to run a free park, and donations help us maintain PARK365. Thank you for supporting this amazing community resource! 
Be safe, be respectful and have fun!
