Building Stronger Community is ‘Mayor’s Challenge’

Mayor Yiaway Yeh announces second day of fun for Palo Altans.

Palo Alto Mayor Yiaway Yeh wants you to join your neighbors for a fun-filled day bocce ball, tennis and yoga.

The event is the second part of the YMCA Mayor’s Challenge, a . This one is called the “Day in the Park,” and will take place at both Mitchell park and Riconanda Park.

Participants will get to play each of the three activities, 45 minutes at a time. Tennis rackets and bocce balls will be provided, but you should bring your own yoga mat if you want to do yoga.

The “Day in the Park” is being co-sponsored by the Palo Alto Tennis Club and Campo di Bocce, and will take place Sunday, June 3, from 2-5 p.m.

The event is free of charge and open to all Palo Alto residents, PAUSD students, and anyone who commutes to Palo Alto. You can register here for the event.

“Day in the Park” follows the successful debut of the Mayor’s Challenge on March 25, when 150 neighbors and volunteers cam out for table tennis games held in gyms throughout the city. Some of the participants were seasoned table tennis masters, while others came to swing for the first time.

“Stories of the showdown between Public Safety Chief Dennis Burns and former Mayor Le Levy are already part of local lore,” said Yiaway Yeh in an announcement Thursday.

The top three neighborhoods with the greatest number of participants in table tennis games were Midtown, Barron Park and Old Palo Alto.
