Battle Ground Summer Playground Program
This nine week free summer program serves four local neighborhood parks in Battle Ground and brings fun, recreation, and organized play to kids during the summer break. This program also serves families from Amboy, Hockinson, Yacolt and other North County residents as well as one park in Ridgefield. Through arts, craft projects, and games, children are free to use their imagination.
Parents and grandparents are invited to join the activities and together they learn to play. Each week has a themed activity aimed at kids 3-10 years old. Covid saw a change in the programs but kids were able to pick up an art kit and enjoy the activities at home! This program served over 1,800 children in 2019 and the summer playground program continues to grow each year. This free summer play program brings recreation activities directly to local neighborhoods, making the program accessible and affordable .This grant covers a portion of staffing costs and all materials and supplies to bring a program to kids that is affordable, accessible and fun!
