CT Storywalk® Program

A StoryWalk® is a fun activity that engages families in literacy while being physically active through walking or hiking. Pages from a children’s book are printed and placed in wood frames along a walkable path. Families have fun reading aloud together and building children’s interest in reading while enjoying the physical and mental health benefits of the outdoors.

The CT Storywalk® Program encourages children and families to visit multiple permanent Storywalk® setups throughout the state at various CT State Parks and State Forests. Stories at the four Storywalk® locations will be changed quarterly for fun all year round.
