Note: Hours for Drop In Recreation at Wilson Park:
Monday - Friday 2:00pm - 7:00pm // Closed for City holidays;
This Community Center, operated by the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Youth Programs, maintains a “Drop-In” Recreation Policy during its hours of operation. Except for instances that are specifically noted, the following policy applies:
• The drop-in program operates on a first-come, first serve basis. The Department is not responsible for maintaining a slot for any child on any particular date, and permits youth to arrive at and depart from the program at their own volition and at unscheduled times. Recreation staff prepares a variety of games and activities for children that are in attendance on any given day.
• The Department of Parks, Recreation, and Youth Programs is not responsible for providing care beyond basic supervision, nor is it responsible for monitoring attendance, arrival, or departure. Any records maintained (ie. participant information forms) are done so for basic safety, security and for evaluative purposes
• There may be occasions when a child wishes to attend the program and we have met our MAXIMUM NUMBER FOR THE DAY. In this case, attendance will not be possible for the child. As such, under no circumstances, should a parent substitute attendance at this program for regularly scheduled childcare.
• AGE REQUIREMENT: Children must be at least 7 years of age to participate in drop-in programming at this center. “Drop-in” activities are designed for children 7 years of age and older, and may not be appropriate for younger children.
***Please note that, for planning purposes, special events and/or field trips may require advanced registration and parental permission. Advanced notification will be given in such instances***
