This FREE drop-in program runs Monday to Thursday each week throughout July and August. The Park n’ Play Program Leaders are dressed in blue and are there to facilitate fun outdoor activities for you and your school-aged children. The Parent Link Centre joins us every Tuesday to provide play and support for families with young children. Caregivers of children under six are always required to stay and supervise their children. Parents are responsible for drop-in children at all times and must be available in the event of an emergency.
