The Born Learning Trail is an interactive, playful, and visible community engagement tool designed to help parents, caregivers, and communities support early learning by helping boost children’s language and literacy skills while encouraging families to get active. We believe that it’s essential to help our youth grow, flourish, and have the learning tools needed to set them up for success. 

“At Affinity Plus, we value educational development, and we hope the Born Learning Trail will help our community do even more to get kids off to the right start,” said Billie Packer, Rochester Branch Manager, Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union. “We’re proud to help make the park an environment to grow, learn, and interact.”

Through an $11,000 contribution, Affinity Plus and its employees will both sponsor and maintain the trail for at least the next 5 years. 

The Born Learning trail is located at approximately 840 7th St NE, along the Silver Creek bike path near Three Links Park in Rochester. 

The path consists of ten interactive signs in English, Spanish, and Somali with activities to turn an outdoor trip into a fun learning experience all families can enjoy!
