Metro Parks Tacoma is joining the national effort to keep kids safe, engaged, and learning all summer long by providing six straight weeks of summer learning activities. The Summer Playground Program is an annual effort by the organization to prevent summer slide and raise awareness around the important role summer learning programs play in ensuring kids return to school in the fall ready to succeed.

Each week, Metro Parks Tacoma will focus on a different theme:

  • Space
  • Hidden math
  • Majestic mountains
  • My neighborhood
  • Futuristic friends
  • Ocean to sound

Each theme highlights a category of learning such as literacy, science, arts and culture, health and wellness, and sustainability. Bring the whole family to any of the following locations  July 24 – August 30 for a summer filled with learning and fun. The free programs operate at six sites across Tacoma, Monday through Friday from 11AM to 3PM.
