Oshawa Playground Program

Summer playground programs are back this summer at neighbourhood parks in Oshawa, starting July 12.

Children aged three to 12 are invited to check out their local park this summer to take part in a fun and free experience, with the programs run by trained leaders who provide interactive games, songs and crafts for children daily throughout the summer.

There is also a drop-off program for children aged five to 12, which allows parents and guardians to drop their kids at playground locations. This program require that all participants fill out consent forms on the first day they attend the program.

Oshawa will also be running a preschool playground twice a week at various locations for children aged three to five. Parents and/or guardians are required to actively participate during the program sessions.

Participants should wear sunscreen, a hat and bring a water bottle and should a program location continue to run during high heat, it will be with an emphasis on passive games and activities in shade with frequent breaks.

The programs are being offered in partnership with Their Opportunity, a national children’s charity that develops and subsidizes sports programming for kids.
