The City of Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program has announced that the Summer Parks Playground Program is in operation now through Aug. 19. The program’s hours are 9 a.m. -4 p.m. Monday through Friday; playground leaders are stationed at Clapp Park, Deming Park, and The Common in the city.
The Summer Playground Program offers a variety of recreation activities to children ages 6 to 13 at no cost. Playground leaders create safe, supervised and fun-filled environments with activities including sports, games, arts and crafts, and nature activities. The program is designed to provide “drop-in” activities for children and is not a substitute for day camp or childcare.
In addition to the activities, the program helps to foster self-esteem, friendships and provides participants with positive and caring role models. For more information, please contact Becky Manship, Recreation Activities Coordinator, at 499-9370.
