Summer Park Adventure Program

Due to the COVID-19 circumstances, we are sad to report that our Summer Park Adventure Program will not be offered this summer.

We hope that you understand and appreciate your flexibility as we all navigate the many hardships this pandemic has caused. We do have a variety of other youth and family programs available this summer, including free wildlife programs and summer concerts. Please check out all that we do have lined up for this summer at the menu on the left and please, contact us anytime for additional information. 

Thank you!

Playground Program

The Summer Park Adventure Program (formerly the Playground Program) operates as a drop-in program for children in grades 1-7 at five parks each week between the hours of 9:00 am-3:00 pm each day. Kids enjoy outdoor sports and games and a variety of other activities such as fishing, campfires, playgrounds and more. Each park is very different so activities change at each park!

Children may attend any day or every day! 

On-Site Registration

  • The one-time registration fee of $15.00 is handled on-site at the park upon arrival. Pre-registration is not required and they only have to register once. 
  • The daily fee to attend is $5.00. 
  • Discount cards are available! 10 visits for $45.00. Pick them up at the park from the program staff.

Children MUST bring lunches, snacks, a refillable water bottle and a GREAT, FUN, POSITIVE  ATTITUDE every day!


Once 7th grade has been completed, participants can become Junior volunteers! Interested volunteers can attend any of the park days or complete the Volunteer Interest Form for more information. 

Senior High School volunteers are needed!

The program is staffed by college students who are CPR/First Aid certified and are assisted by middle and high school aged volunteers. The staff report directly to the Program Coordinator and Recreation Department Director. 

Additional information is available in the Parent Handbook and should be reviewed before attending the program. Thank you!

For more information please call us at 724-327-2100 x131 or x115. 

See you in the parks!
