Pittsfield: Drop-in activities at city playgrounds

Posted

The 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. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday; playground leaders are stationed at Clapp Park, Deming Park and The Common.

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.

For more information, contact Becky Manship, recreation activities coordinator, at 499-9370.
