Outdoor Opportunities Abound for Local Youngsters
Did you know that the City of Superior hosts a playground program every summer? The programs have been created especially for children ages 5-11, and are held at seven outdoor park sites. The seven parks are listed at the bottom of this article.
Field trips are the centerpiece of the program. For example, Webster Park and Wade Bowl will attend Adventure Zone on July 24th. Hammond Park and Bartley Manor are scheduled for Adventure Zone on July 31st, with Gouge Park following on August 7th.
Staff from City Parks & Rec supervise games and art projects, and also conduct field trips to swim at the YMCA on occasion.
The school district also offers free lunch at these sites as well as others.
The annual Box Hockey Tournament at Billings Park takes place July 21-22. This a fun-filled day spent out at Billings Park. Kids from each park have the opportunity to not only participate in and watch the Box Hockey Tournament, but also to participate in a variety of other activities and interact with kids from other Playground sites.
Activities include making homemade ice cream, arts and crafts activities including tye dye, a nature walk, and playing at the playground in the park. There is no cost to attend this great field trip, but participants are asked to bring a white t-shirt if they are interested in the tie-dye activity.
