The Outdoor Supervised Playgrounds program has been a staple of summer for Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation since 1944. It's a drop-in program designed for kids 7 to 12 years of age, and provides a wonderful place to be a kid. As they like to say, it's a “low-tech, high-fun” program.

The Outdoor Supervised Playgrounds program is offered Monday through Friday until August 12, 2016, and is weather dependent. The program is closed on Monday, July 4.
