Playground leaders will provide safe supervised activities including sports, games, arts and crafts, nature and more. This program is designed to provide "drop-in" activities for children (if you are looking for child care we would suggest the Summer Explorers or Cool School Rec Program) At this playground program, attendance is neither mandatory nor enforced - leaders will supervise activities and encourage your child to participate, however, they will not prevent your child from leaving supervised activities if your child desires to do so.
We ask all parents to discuss with their child when they may leave the playground and their behavior while attending playgrounds. We also ask parents to encourage their children to participate in supervised activities within the park to ensure maximum safety. In addition to the regular activities every day, the Summer Playground Program enjoys a rich tradition of special events and field trips on Fridays (you must pre-register. See the Summer Activity Guide for more information). Playground leaders will supervise special events and trips on Fridays and will not provide regular activities at each site.
Rain Policy for traditional playgrounds: If we see lightning, hear thunder, experience heavy rain/wind in the area, the park program will close and children will be asked to leave the area for a minimum of 30 minutes. If the storm continues, the park will remain closed the rest of the day. Please call the information line 262-522-9356 in the event of inclement weather to obtain the most current information. You may want to discuss alternate options with your children in the event of severe weather.
