Ithaca, N.Y. : Playdate in the Park is a celebration of and for young children and their families in Tompkins County and beyond with all components of the event centered on children. Free carousel rides, healthy snacks, and activities will be provided and children and adults will have the opportunity to play!

Playdate in the Park is an event that the Child Development Council presents as a gift to the community. It is an example of unlocking the potential in young children and their families through education and play. It reflects who we are as an organization: one that values play and its importance to the development of young children; one that values the parents/caregivers; and one that involves and gives back to the community.

Please join us for Playdate in the Park on Tuesday, June 7 th , from 4:30-7:00pm at the Small Pavilion at Stewart Park!

  • Free Carousel Rides (not only during the hours we will be there, but ALL day!)

This program was made possible in part by a grant from the Tompkins County Tourism Program.
