Spending the day together as a family doing something fun and meaningful is a great way to celebrate Father’s Day. There are some simple ways to spend good quality time with dad this Sunday while making memories and relaxing. Here are a few ideas:

  1. SRP Park in North Augusta is throwing a “Father’s Day Brunch and BBQ” this Sunday at the park from noon — 5pm. Dads can enjoy a BBQ lunch on the Savannah River, play catch and run bases on the field. Reservations are required. Visit, greenjacketsbaseball.com for more information.
  2. Rent a boat for the day or find a local fishing spot and go fishing. Clark’s Hill has boat rentals for half and full days at Clark’s Hill Marina (clarkshillmarina.com). This is a great activity for a son or daughter, or both, to do with good ole dad.
  3. Walk back in history with dad by visiting local museums and sites. The Augusta Museum of History has a one-of-a-kind James Brown exhibit with rare and personal memorabilia. The Lucy Craft Laney Museum is the only African American museum in the CSRA. A history walk down Laney Walker Boulevard will call your attention to monuments dedicated to influential black men and women like Essie McIntyre, Judge John H. Ruffin, and Laney.

  4. Go for a bike ride or walk on North Augusta’s Greeneway trail. The 7-mile paved trail is mostly shaded and includes flat and inclined terrain. Visit discoversouthcarolina.com/products/2598.
  5. Plan a family game night. Is dad a monopoly fan? Or does he like Scrabble? Are food puzzles his thing? Take the opportunity to make dad’s special dinner (maybe personalized homemade pizzas or hamburgers on the grill) and then bring the family together for whatever game is dad’s favorite.
  6. Build something together. Is there a task or chore around the house that has needed dad’s attention? Has dad been wanting to make a garden box or swing for the backyard? Whatever he needs, he would love to have help! So, grab some old clothes and gloves and get to work. After the project is complete set up an ice cream bar with dad’s favorite toppings and make him a special treat for all the hard work.
