Longtime pals Jyl and Nick take a trip into Welles Park to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Come along for the ride and learn a few fun facts about the park’s 150-year history as you flex your mind and bend your brain! Take a breath in the Observation Station, strike a pose in the Gazebo and move mindfully into the mulch of the Nature Play Space. Nick and Jyl provide a series of suggestions on this gently guided journey that includes musical moves and natural grooves.
About CCT Walkie Talkies
Walkie Talkies are fun, totally original audio experiences families can listen to together while exploring different Chicago neighborhoods. Each episode was commissioned by Chicago Children’s Theatre and created by a different local theater artist, resulting in a fun and educational new audio series that children and families can enjoy together, outdoors and safely, even over the winter months, while learning more about the beautiful city they live in.
So lace up your sneakers, pop in your ear buds, and take a guided walk through some of Chicago’s most distinctive neighborhoods. Each episode is under one hour and comes with an interactive map to guide families and classroom field trips on each bite-sized journey, plus photos of top tour highlights, vocabulary keys, recommended reading and song lists, and other fun, family activities.
Walkie Talkies are a gift from our supporters’ families to yours!
Before you start…we recommend you download this walking map and resources and review it first. You may also want to bring a bluetooth speaker or some wireless headphones so everyone in the family can listen together. We recommend listening to the podcast once before venturing out on your hike. There are lots of great resources included!
