Summer Playground Program

Come Play This Summer!

The Summer Playground Program provides safe, structured activities for children who have completed four-year-old kindergarten through fifth grade. Sites are monitored by competent employees who have been oriented in first aid and the handling of blood-borne pathogens. Activities include arts and crafts, games, field trips, and swimming at the YMCA.
  • Runs mid June through the first week of August
  • Open Monday-Friday from 11:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., weather permitting
  • Registration is at each program site throughout the full eight weeks of programming
  • Bathroom facilities and drinking water available
  • No charge for program, although some field trips may have a minimal fee
Changes for 2017:

Bartley Manor will no longer be a playground program site. Cooper School will not be a site either, however for 2017 the program will be offered in Billings Park proper.   Wade Bowl will once again be a site. More information to come as plans continue to unfold.
