Park district’s Play Dayz provides end-of-summer of fun

Residents invited to participate in fun activities Aug. 20 at DiOrio Park

Bensenville, Ill.—The Bensenville Park District invites residents to “meet us at the park” for Play Dayz, 3-5 p.m. Saturday, August 20, at DiOrio Park, located on Barron Street between Memorial Road and West Wood Ave. The free event is part of the park district’s Park n’ Play initiative to bring programs and activities to neighborhood parks throughout the year.

“Activities such as Play Dayz make people want to get outdoors, connect with their neighbors and, most of all, have fun,” says Bensenville Park District Superintendent of Recreation Michael Hayes. “Park ‘n Play provides residents activities that let them explore new interests with our parks providing the backdrop. We hope our residents will enjoy the wide variety of things taking place at DiOrio Park.”

Play Dayz participants ages 4 and older can take part in a variety of different activities throughout the park, including tie-dying and nature activities as well as making and flying a kite. The event is free for district residents.

Play Dayz was originally scheduled to kick off the summer’s set of Park n’ Play events on May 21, but inclement weather forced its postponement. Park patrons also are invited to the final ‘Entertainment Dayz Movie in the Park’ presentation of “Sing 2” at Sunset Park later that evening, with the movie starting at dusk.
