The Day of Play is a City of Chandler produced event that is part of a nation wide celebration recognizing the importance of fitness, health and wellness for kids of all ages. Families are provided an opportunity to learn about a healthy lifestyle.

Come spend the morning at Tumbleweed Park as we promote health, wellness, and fitness for kids of all ages. Free activities will get the kids playing and their minds active, while parents can explore the various booths on health, wellness, and fitness.

Day of Play will feature a variety of fun activities organized by many of the non-profit organizations, businesses and municipal divisions serving the community.

Featured Activities

Foam Fusion
Are you ready to run, walk, climb and crawl your way through our obstacle course filled with foam and challenges for all skill levels! The course is a non-competitive and the most important thing is to have fun while getting some exercise.

Come prepared to experience an obstacle course where you…

  • Scale a giant boot camp inflatable
  • Potato sack race your opponent
  • Search a pit of foam to find hidden bean bags
  • Agile enough to maneuver your way through a tricky trip wire
  • Military crawl through a foam filled rope course
  • Race through the ladder challenge
  • Test your physical endurance with the fitness dice.
  • Finish strong by sprinting to the finish line through a wall of foam!

Participants that finish the Foam Fusion course will be rewarded with snacks courtesy of Sprouts Farmers Market and Buffalo Wild Wings.
