July 4 - August 19, 2016
Every summer, children 6 to 12 years of age are invited to take part in a fun-filled summer of FREE activities at 10 different playground locations throughout the City. Each playground is staffed by two qualified and trained playground supervisors.
The summer’s seven-week playground program includes cooperative games, crafts, songs, stories, sports and much more. Activities focus on a different theme every week, and special events are also planned "off the playgrounds" for all kids to enjoy.
The program also offers free of charge a summer sports program, an arts program and a cultural program. Specialized playleaders travel from playground to playground offering the children different sporting and craft activities.
The hours of operation for the playground programs are as follows:
Monday to Thursday
Bernice Sayese Centre: 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
All other playgrounds: 12:00 noon to 5:30 p.m.
All playgrounds: 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Parents are encouraged to phone the Margo Fournier Centre at 953-4816 if they have further questions about the playground program.
