Playparks set to open


(L-R) Summer program coordinator Alicia Gooding and play leaders Sharayah Moroz, Baily Holzer, Allyson Haukeness, Larissa Smeltzer and Karlee Ross have a busy summer ahead of them with the Estevan playparks.

Local youth will have a daily opportunity to enjoy crafts, swimming and other activities at the City of Estevan's playparks, beginning with a public swim at four parks on June 27.  

Five different parks will be operating this year: Hillside, Trojan, Hillcrest, Churchill in south-central Estevan, and Rusty Duce in northwest Estevan.

The parks are free to use for children 11 years of age and younger; those under five must be accompanied by someone over the age of 15.

Crafts will be offered daily, starting at 10:30 a.m. at all five parks. Swimming will begin daily at 1 p.m. at four of the five parks; Trojan is the exception.

Alicia Gooding will be the summer program coordinator. Play leaders are Larissa Smeltzer (Rusty Duce), Allyson Haukeness (Hillcrest), Bailey Holzer (Hillside), Sharayah Moroz (Churchill) and Karlee Ross (Trojan).

Each week will have a different theme. June 30 to July 4 will be Swing into Summer, which will give youth a chance to get to know their play leaders.

The other weeks will be: Creepy Crawlers from July 7 to 11; Arctic Adventure from July 14 to 18; Holiday Hang Time from July 21 to 25; Superheroes from July 28 to August 1; Around the World from August 5 to 8; Backwoods Bash from August 11 to 15; and Rider Pride from August 18 to 22.

Several special events will be offered this year. The first will see playpark staff team up with Estevan's Kinsmen and Kinettes for Canada Day celebrations on July 1 at the Kin playpark at Hillside.

A pancake breakfast will be served on July 18 at the Churchill park, starting at 10 a.m. A movie night will be August 7 at the Hillside park.

The annual carnival will be August 15 at the Rusty Duce Playpark. This year's carnival will have a camping theme.

There will also be Saturday afternoon swims, starting at 1 p.m., and evening swims, starting at 6 p.m., which will alternate through the different parks that have a pool.
