School is out and that means Battle Ground’s Summer Playground program is in session.
The free program, designed for children aged 4 – 10, brings fun recreational activities to Battle Ground parks each Wednesday and Thursday of the 9-week summer break.
Each week features a different themed activity and provides children the opportunity to make at least one arts and crafts project to take home with them. No need to register, just come outside and play!
The program is made possible by grants funded by Riverview Community Bank, the Clark County Parks Foundation and Banner Bank.
Weekly sessions are held on:
Wednesdays from 10:00 am to noon at Kiwanis Park (422 SW 2nd Ave) and from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Horsethief Park (SW 12th Ave & SW 11th St)
Thursdays from 10:00 am to noon at Florence Robison Park (1900 NW 9th St) and from 2:00-4:00 pm at Cresap Park (1911 SE 2nd Place).
Themes include Fish Tales; Red, White, and Blue; Fire Academy; Duct Tape Craze; Diggin’ Dirt; Flour Power; Medieval Times; Space Odyssey; and Leafs and Greens.
