If you have a non-athletic child, you can still find ways to bond with him or her through non-competitive physical activities. We've compiled a guide to parks, rinks, and other sports centers in Fairfield County, CT, that offer healthy and fun activities - like hiking, swimming, and table tennis - for all ages.
