Water was flying and families were smiling at Bergfeld Park on Thursday during Tyler Parks and Recreation’s final Family Fun Night of the summer. The event featured giant board games, water gun fights, food truck eats and more, creating a space for families to play together before the start of the new school year.
Debbie Isham, Tyler Parks and Recreation special events and recreation manager, said she hoped the event encouraged participants to spend time together. “Families need time together … to unplug, enjoy and have fun.”
Jackie Lopez attended the event with her 5-year-old daughter, Zoey. She said Zoey’s favorite activity was playing with the water balloons. “I’m always looking for stuff to do with my daughter. I love when the city of Tyler does stuff for families and kids, especially during summer.”
