Cornwall Ontario – The City of Cornwall’s popular Summer Playground Program is back with free morning and afternoon recreation and leisure programs in various City parks from now until August 19th.
The Summer Playground Program is a free, accessible drop-in program offered in 21 neighbourhood parks (find a full here). Trained park leaders provide fun & exciting play opportunities for children between the ages of 5 – 12.
Active and quiet games, sports, songs, and crafts are offered daily. There are also a number of special off-the-park events planned throughout the summer, such as the annual Soccer Tournament, Park Scavenger Hunt/ Movie Day and the Supershow.
The Summer Playground Program program runs for 7 weeks during the months of July and August on Mondays from 1 pm – 4 pm and Tuesdays to Fridays from 9 am – 12 pm and 1 pm – 4 pm.
Registration for the summer playground program is held at any park site – all park leaders have registration forms on hand.
Parents & guardians are always welcome to come with their children to the park for the activities. Children under 5 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
A park leader will be at Ray Lalonde Park (Mondays from 1pm to 4pm), Terry Fox Park (Tuesdays from 9am to 12pm and 1pm to 4pm), Meadowvale Park (Thursdays from 9am to 12pm and 1pm to 4pm) and Dover Heights Park (Fridays from 9am to 12pm and 1pm to 4pm) on designated days once per week. The City of Cornwall hopes the new sites will help introduce the program to new families. Children can expect the same fun at a park closer to home.
Throughout the summer, special guests take time to visit the children at each one of our participating parks. Check with your park leader for full details on dates and time. Workshops include:Ontario Early Years Centre, Library – Story Time with Lyne, Sports Workshop with Caitlin, and Arts Workshop with Amanda.
