Summer Park Adventure Program
Thank you to everyone who participated in our survey regarding the Summer Park Adventure Program during COVID-19 mitigation. Unfortunately, it’s been decided that the program can not be safely offered during this time. We regret that we will not be able to offer this to our community’s children and families but we are looking forward to a very active, outdoor, fun-filled summer next year!
The Summer Park Adventure Program (formerly the Playground Program) operates as a drop-in program for children in grades 1-7 at five parks each week between the hours of 9:00 am-3:00 pm each day. Kids enjoy outdoor sports and games and a variety of other activities such as fishing, campfires, playgrounds and more. Each park is very different so activities change at each park!
June 15 to July 31
- Mondays: Heritage Park
- Tuesdays: Bear Hollow Park
- Wednesdays: Murrysville Community Park
- Thursdays: Townsend Park
- Fridays: Sardis Park
Children may attend any day or every day!
