JAMESTOWN – Another season of the Summer Playground Program will be in place for the city of Jamestown and for the first time in several years, a free lunch program will be provided at each site by Chautauqua Opportunities, Inc.
The announcement was made Tuesday by officials with the city’s Parks, Recreation, and Conservation Department. The lunch program is being made possible through a grant from the United Way of Southern Chautauqua County.
The playground program is free of charge and there are six playground program locations this year, including:
- Allen Park
- Fletcher Elementary School
- Johnson Street Tot Lot
- Lillian Dickson Tot Lot
- Lincoln Elementary School
- Ring Elementary School
Each will be staffed by a number of city college-aged residents, many of which hope to pursue a career path in education.
This year’s program will run from Monday, June 24 to Friday, Aug. 2 with all sites being open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is geared for children between 5 to 13 years old. Children must register the first time they attend their playground site. They are free to come and go as they wish after that point.
For additional information, please call the Recreation Office at 483-7523.
