July 3 - August 17, 2018
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.
