Outdoor Supervised Playgrounds in Sioux Falls this Summer
A low-tech, high-fun summer tradition since 1944 continues this year. The Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation Department is again organizing their Outdoor Supervised Playgrounds program.
The free drop-in program at Sioux Falls parks is for kids 7 to 12 years-old. Playground staff will lead games, crafts, and special activities for the summer. Parents can get weekly themes and activity schedules from the staff.
The Outdoor Supervised Playgrounds program will be offered Monday through Friday, June 5 through August 11, but is closed on Tuesday, July 4. Parks and Rec says to look for the rec van to pull up and come out for the fun!
