Story Time with Barnaby D. Troll

Tuesdays 10:30-11:30 a.m. 

Spring Session: April 4 – June 27, 2023


Durham Central Park’s free program for preschoolers and their families. Each week at The Leaf, instructor Ms. Kristin will read a favorite children’s story, sing a song or two and re-create the story through play on the ADA-accessible Mt. Merrill playground. After Story Time, you can continue to visit Barnaby, Mr. Pickles the Turtle, Rockin’ Reuben the Cardinal, and create a complimentary craft.

  • Best for ages: 2-5 years
  • Parents/caregivers must stay with their child the entire hour and are ultimately responsible for their child’s/children’s behaviors.

Story Time Location: The Leaf, with a Rain Location of the Pavilion


Meet the Instructor: Kristin Reali (“Ms. Kristin”)

Kristin has worked with young children for more than 30 years as a Speech-Language Pathologist in private settings and in the school system. Her love is sharing favorite stories with preschoolers and then retelling the stories as the children actively participate through language, music and play. Ms. Kristin is excited to use Durham Central Park as a platform to read her favorite children’s books.
