The City of Estevan Leisure Services Division is pleased to announce the start of the Paddling Pool/Playpark Program for 2020. Three (3) different parks, Rusty Duce, Hillcrest and Hillside, will be open this year for crafts, games and activities in the mornings from 10 am – 12 pm and free swimming in the afternoons from 1 pm-5 pm.
“We are very excited that we have the opportunity to open our Paddling pools and Play park programs to give kids and families in our community the opportunity to be creative, get active and enjoy the outdoors,” shared Cassidy Reich, the program coordinator.
The programs will start on July 6 and run through August 24.
Erin Wilson Program Manager shared, “There will not be Saturday Swims, Night swims or special events at the parks this summer because of different requirements that we must meet to comply with restrictions.
“We do have some changes to how our programs will function, such as handing a craft package to each child for craft time and having a limited number of toys available for pool times. We do allow outside toys into the pool, so if your child wishes to bring theirs from home, please do.”
The Churchill park location will not be open at this time. We are working with Public Health on measures to improve the current conditions of the Paddling Pool. More information will be announced at a later date.
This year, Playpark leaders will rotate throughout the parks so your kids will get to meet them all. Nyla Dyck, Madison Flaman and Charlotte Andrist will spend the summer keeping your kids active and engaged.
Monthly calendars and program rules will be available at each park as well as online here.
