Moms and dads will agree that going through a pandemic is stressful for everyone in the household. And with so much electronic gizmo's to choose from we've been trying to un-plug and shove the kids outside to burn off energy and give their thumbs a rest. Coming to the rescue is the City of Sioux Falls.

The Sioux Falls Parks and Recreation (SFPR) Playground Program is just what families were hoping to bring some variety into summer. And with the parks now open a daily dose of the fun comes at a perfect time. But before you just point your kids in the direction of the nearest park there's some paperwork you need to fill out. SFPR has a waiver for you to fill out that must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. Below are the park locations and hours when they will have activities.

And anytime during the summer if there is inclement weather, the program will be delayed or canceled. The programs run Monday through Friday ending Friday, August 7.
