Weekday Morning Play Dates

For children infant through age five and their parents.

Come out and play! Bismarck Parks and Recreation District invites parents and young kids to gather at our “houses” to play. This FREE Play Date time comes with assorted equipment and toys. You get to play and mess up our spaces, and not yours. We provide the place. Parents provide the supervision. Please know this is not a drop-off Play Date. Everyone stays and plays. Play Date is an ideal play time and social interaction for stay at-home parents and their infant through age five children.
