Did you know that each of our neighborhood parks runs a playground program every summer? Children entering Grades 1-8 who are residents of the village are invited to come to the park during the summer to find out what activities are taking place.
Each park has its own flavor and “favorite” activities. The park directors and their staff run games, sports, tournaments and arts and crafts activities during the day and into the evening. Trips are also run through the parks.
These activities, except for the trips, are free to anyone attending who is a resident of the Inc. Village of Garden City. Registration is not necessary. A child may attend any day they choose. The children are supervised while in the park but the children attending must be able to come and go to the park as they please or a parent or childcare provider must be in attendance while the child participates. This program cannot used as babysitting.
Activities begin around 10 a.m. each day, Monday through Friday. Come meet your park directors and their staff. The directors are -
Tullamore Park: Bob Townsend
Nassau Haven: Bob Flecker
Edgemere Park: Kristian Geller
Grove Park: Will DeLannoy
Hemlock Park: Brian Holman
This program is only as great as the children who attend. Please support our staff as they strive to create a great summer for the kids!
