Here are two Melrose Recreation Department drop-in programs for your children to enjoy this summer. For more information, check the Recreation Department web page, brochure, and registration page for youth activities.
Open Park Program at Melrose Common
Bring your children to the Melrose Common for our Free Open Park Program! All ages are welcome, but children under 10 cannot be left unsupervised. The program runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from now through August 7. Our Park Instructors will be available to play sports, organize games, run activities, and set up arts & crafts projects for all who are interested. Just show up and we will provide the fun. Bring your friends or come and meet new ones. It is our mission to get all Melrose kids outside and into our beautiful parks to play and socialize. (Program may close early if no participants are in the park.)
Please note: Supervision is very limited. A guardian must accompany any child under the age of 10, and must remain for the duration of participation.
Pizza Party Fridays
Every Friday our Parks Instructors will be running fun free events and activities at our parks. Play games, meet friends, and just go crazy!
We will be serving hot pizza from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. for $1 per slice as well as cold drinks for $1 each. Be sure to take advantage of the day and kick your weekend off right! See you between 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. Please note we will be in a different park every Friday!
