The ‘Let’s Play in the Park’ program is back for its sixth season this summer. The City of Mississauga program provides kids ages 6 to 12 with the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, be active and make new friends.

The nine-week program is free and runs weekdays from Tuesday, July 2 to Friday, August 30. The program takes place at 13 parks across Mississauga and includes two parks that are new to the program this year: Barondale Green Park and Hillside Park.

Supervised by qualified staff trained in HIGH FIVE® principles of healthy child development, kids in the program get to participate in fun recreation activities including organized games and sports, arts and crafts, theme days and more. Residents can register for as many Let’s Play in the Park programs as they would like.
