Summertime is here again, and that means a season of fun activities in Portland's parks. For the 99th consecutive year, Portland parks have offered a summer playground program.
The program features a wide variety of drop-in recreation activities for children ages 5 through 12. With neighborhood sites throughout the city, playground leaders create safe, supervised and fun-filled environments with a variety of activities including sports, games, arts, crafts and nature. Many of the city's parks also have wading pools that open on hot weather days.
