City of Pittsfield Playground Program to Begin July 10

The City of Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program has announced that it will be continuing the Summer Parks Playground Program at three city parks this summer for six weeks beginning Monday, July 10.

The Summer Playground Program offers a wide variety of recreation activities to Pittsfield 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 will be held 9 a.m. 4 p.m. Monday through Friday through Friday, Aug. 18.  Playground leaders will be stationed at Clapp Park, Deming Park, and The Common. The program is designed to provide “drop-in” activities for children; please know that the program is not a substitute for day camp or childcare.

More than just a fun time, the program fosters self-esteem and friendships and provides participants with positive and caring role models.
