FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Kids across Fort Wayne have a chance to have fun and stay active throughout the summer.
Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation kicked off the summer playground program Thursday morning.
Sum activities include kickball, basketball, arts & crafts, and field trips.
It's a way for kids who are still in school to participate in interactive activities throughout the day.
"We believe keeping kids active is extremely important in establishing a pattern of wellness, along with engaging and interactive play, like what happens every day in our Fort Wayne playgrounds. Keeping our children active and engaged is vital to the development of a healthy community," said Parks and Recreation Director Steve McDaniel.
Children ages 5 to 18 who are still in school can participate in the program Monday-Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., through July 26. The program is held at Hamilton Park, Lafayette Park, Memorial Park, Packard Park, and Lakeside Park.
