It's a program started back in the 1960s to fill a need for Lima residents.

The Lima Summer Playground Program was started by Pat Morris and has evolved over the years. The program is 8-weeks, Monday through Friday at Faurot, Lincoln, and Robb Parks. Children ages 6 to 12 years old are supervised by a group of recreation leaders hired by the city. Whether it's a round of Simon Says or Four Square, the playground program is intended to be an investment in the Lima community.

"It's a great way for the city to invest in its public and say look, we're going to offer an opportunity for the kids, and our kids are six to twelve years of age, to have a place where they can get involved with some great programming for the summer and help address some of those things that parents have to deal with and that's find help with their kids during the summer months," said Ric Stolly, Deputy Public Works Director.

Stolly says there are still a few openings and to contact the park office at 419-221-5195. There is a registration fee that applies.
