A Place for Families
The Downtown Association of Santa Cruz has expanded its efforts and increased its investment toward the goal of creating and supporting positive, inspiring and engaging experiences for families and children in the Downtown Santa Cruz district.
Coming off of the success of the Inaugural Mini Golf / Art Festival which entertained hundreds of families in Downtown Santa Cruz over a weekend in February, the Downtown Association of Santa Cruz is working towards continuing with a family focused Kid’s Day presenting opportunities and experiences for our young people.
Downtown Santa Cruz has a wealth of local independent businesses, many of which are multi generational family owned and operated. Many business owners in the district have families and are raising children in and around the Downtown Santa Cruz business environment, plus many of the business owners themselves grew up in Downtown Santa Cruz and helped out at their parent’s shops.
This cultural value of family and community instills a level of awareness of the importance that children play in a downtown environment, as well as the value that a downtown community has in the development of a child.
April 15 is an opportunity for Downtown Santa Cruz to celebrate kids, and invite kids and families to celebrate Downtown Santa Cruz.
