Free Supervised Playground Program

June 27 - August 5, 2016

Closed Monday July 4th

The Town of Vestal Recreation Department invites you to spend a morning, afternoon, or both in the Park. A variety of crafts, games, literature, and special events are provided. Make new friends and create new memories. All supervised playground activities are free and open to boys and girls ages 5 and up. Children younger than 5 years are welcome to attend, but they must be accompanied by an adult. Inclement weather sometimes forces us to close the parks. If a storm arrives during the program hours, for safety reasons, we will close the playground and send the children home. We may also close if there is a heat warning. Be sure to watch for information about weekly special events taking place throughout the summer.

To Register: Fill out the Registration Form, providing the activity number with the park you want to attend. Although the playground is a drop-in program and participants may choose not to attend every day, it is required to register.
