June is Recreational and Parks month in Canada. We’re celebrating by encouraging everyone to get out and explore Estevan’s magnificent green spaces. With 33 parks, 5.5 kms of trails, 11 playgrounds, our parks are spaces for everyone to enjoy!
There are many hidden gems throughout Estevan, and as the end of the school season draws near, we encourage you to discover the playpark programs offered for the 2021 season.
Cassidy Reich, playpark supervisor shares, “We will have three (3) different parks, Rusty Duce, Hillcrest and Hillside, open this year for crafts, games and activities in the morning and swimming in the afternoon.”
Regular programming will start on July 5 and run through August 21.
Erin Wilson, program manager shares, “Saturday Swims, Night swims, and special events will resume at the parks this summer because of the potential of restrictions lifting. I can’t share too much yet, but I can say that we have an exciting event in the works that will get our community members out experiencing the green spaces in our community.
The Churchill Park playpark program and paddling pool will not be open this summer. Construction for the park is set to start in the coming months. And we are looking forward to releasing what it will look like moving forward in the coming months.”
Hannah Mantei (Hillside), Katelyn Kobitz (Hillcrest) and Madison Flaman (Rusty Duce) will be the playpark leaders at the parks. Participants may see other members from the aquatics team on occasion at each park to help accommodate shifts.
Monthly calendars and program rules will be available at each park and the City of Estevan website.
