Battle Ground’s free summer playground program begins this week

BATTLE GROUND — School is out and that means Battle Ground’s Summer Playground program is in session. The free program, designed for children aged 4-10, brings fun recreational activities to Battle Ground parks each Wednesday and Thursday of the 9-week summer break.

Each week features a different themed activity and provides children the opportunity to make at least one arts and crafts project to take home with them. There is no need for participants to register, they can just come outside and play.
