Take a look at a recap in the pictures provided.

“It was our first time attending Kids Day and we were surprised at how much there was to do. It’s definitely something we’ll be doing every year from now on. Our kids had a blast!” said Ben Dyer, parent of MedExpress Kids Day attendees.

Did you and your kids also enjoy MedExpress Kids Day? Check out these five kid-friendly activities in Greater Morgantown for more kid-friendly fun!

Visit Cheat Lake Park

Cheat Lake Park and Trail beach

There is much to do at Cheat Lake Park and Trail. A trail along the Lake Lynn shoreline is 4.5-miles long, perfect for biking with the kids or taking a walk. Playgrounds are situated near the trail, where children can play, as well as a “beach” and swimming area.

If you plan to visit Cheat Lake Park, pack a picnic to enjoy with the kids and take an outdoor adventure. You could also fish near the station at the northern tip, or take in the scenery at the viewing area in the southern tip.
