2018 Programs TBA
Free Supervised Playground Program

June 26 - August 4, 2017

Closed - Tuesday July 4

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.
Inclement weather sometimes forces us to close the parks. If it appears to be an all day rain we will close the playground and send the children home. We may also close due to extreme heat warnings. Be sure to watch for news of daily special events that will be taking place throughout the summer. See below.
