Chalk the Walk – GO Vernon Hills

August 10, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Chalk the Walk is all about spreading joy, optimism and inspiration through the magical power of sidewalk chalk. Remember when you were a kid and you’d draw pictures and write happy thoughts with chalk in your driveway and down the sidewalks of your  street? And the adults always smiled when they read the big, pastel-colored messages? This is just like that.  The idea is as simple as it was in childhood: write happy messages, have fun doing it, spread some joy while you’re at it.

All ages are invited to join the Park District on August 10 in Deerpath Park near the Kids Castle playground  We will chalk the walks from 6-7 pm near Kids Castle Playground, then go on a 30-minute walk in Deerpath Park.  Wear your GO Vernon Hills t-shirt if you have one from years past!  Chalk is provided.

Best Practices:

  • Be respectful – consider your neighbors and others who will see our chalked walks.
  • Remember the mission – the goal here is to spread joy, optimism and inspiration; if what you’re writing or drawing doesn’t accomplish that in a pure and simple way, please reconsider.
  • Have fun – play is important to our mental and emotional health; be playful, have fun.
