The Parks and Recreation Department sponsors a summer playground program for children age six to 14 at Booth Hill, Elizabeth Shelton, Lafayette, Long Hill, Mohegan and Sunnyside elementary schools. The playgrounds run for six weeks from late June to early August. The playgrounds are closed for the July 4 holiday and on rainy days. Children should bring their own lunches, and parents should notify playground supervisors of any special medical needs, such as allergies to insect stings
