2022 SUMMER PLAYGROUND PROGRAM
The City of Allentown’s free eight-week summer playground program begins Monday, June 20. This year, a new online registration process is being offered.
 
The program includes playground activities and free lunch for children ages 7-to-15 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. on Mondays and from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays. There are currently 18 participating locations.
 
Daily participants will be eligible to win free prizes at the end of the season, including bicycles, scooters, skateboards, sporting equipment, arts and crafts supplies.
 
Those who participate will also be invited to an end of year ‘Romper Day Celebration’ on Monday, August 8 at 7 p.m. at J. Birney Crum Stadium.

The City’s summer playground program began in 1914 when General Harry C. Trexler and Mrs. Trexler sponsored an outing called “Romper Day.” The celebration is the culminating event of the summer and consists of various games, relay races, and dances.

Registration for the summer playground program can be done on-site but pre-registration is strongly recommended.
