2019 Playground Program
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 2019 dates are July 2 to August 16.
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 play leaders travel from playground to playground offering the children different sporting and craft activities.
Special events include KidzFest Thursday, July 18th from 1-5 p.m. in Kinsmen Park and the Outdoor Day Camp Thursday, August 8th in Little Red River Park.
The Playground Program is supported by the Community Initiatives Fund, Canada Summer Jobs and Saskatchewan Lotteries.
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.
