The Iowa City Parks and Recreation Playgrounds Drop-in Program provides games, arts and crafts, nature activities and special events for children completing grades K-6. The program runs from 9:30-11:30 a.m, Monday - Friday, from June 12 through Aug 4, 2017 at Court Hill, Creekside, Fairmeadows, Highland, Mercer, North Market Square, Wetherby and Willow Creek Parks in Iowa City. Programs will not meet on July 4. Younger children may attend with a participating adult 18 years of age and older. 

This is a no fee, drop-in program, and children are welcome to come and go as they please, so parents should use discretion when sending children without a caregiver. Registration is on-site the first day of attendance. Playgrounds will not open if it is raining, and will close if rain begins after opening.
