We’re Sponsoring a Play Area!

In honor of playing, outdoor fun and awesome kids, we’d like to introduce the Blue Lemon Play Area at Station Park in Farmington.

Learning how to have an active lifestyle starts at an early age. And it’s not hard… kids just need to play outside! To help our younger generation do just that, we’re proud to be associated with this awesome play area.

We think Station Park is pretty cool, and we’re proud to have a restaurant there. So next time you make a visit to eat some Blue Lemon, come visit our play area, and take a turn on the slide. Bring your kids, and show them you’re an active person.

Join us for the ribbon cutting!

Why play areas matter

In a day when childhood obesity and diabetes are on the rise, we want to do something about it. While blaming TV and video games might feel good, we believe that some broad cultural issues exist. Many kids don’t have access to nutritious food, and at the same time have easy access to junk food. Many kids aren’t given opportunities to be active every day. We can do better! They’re our children, for heaven’s sake.

Research shows that how a community is designed, and what elements it has, can greatly contribute to the health of children. This can affect things like obesity, diabetes, asthma, attention deficit disorder and more. Play areas and green spaces are important for their health.

Play areas also help:

  • Develop physical strength
  • Develop social skills
  • Develop emotional skills
  • Develop cognitive skills
