We are new to the North SD area and would like to meet Indian or mixed families with young children. Ours are 2 and 4 years old.
I'm hoping to encourage conversational Hindi and cultural games/ activities.

Hello Payal, We, a group of Indians meet in Mira Mesa Park near Mira Mesa recreation center every Sunday from 10 AM -11:45 PM. Our group has lots of families from different parts of India. We do Surya Namaskar, Warm-ups, Play kids games, Adult games, do some discussions, have lunch together and then go home.

I have 5 year old and 10 year old boys and they enjoy it a lot. In our group we have at least 20-25 Indian kids from age 1 year - 12 years and 40-60 adults. We chat in Hindi, English whatever is comfortable.

It just some fun time together.

Please stop by the park on Sunday in case you are interested.

Hi Payal,

Did you go to the park day in Mira Mesa?
We have a 4 year old, I am indian, my husband is american, and I am looking to meet indians so my son can grow up with our indian culture as I am away from family.
Born in UK and been in the US 10 years.
We are in Encinitas.
email me if you are interested in meeting up at the Park day in Mira Mesa or elsewhere.

We'll try and make it this weekend.
