Community Days

NOTE:  All Community Days are currently postponed due to COVID-19 as attendance within the facility is limited.  This is being done to maximize our primary goal of serving youths ages 6-15 WITHOUT parents being present.

While the Sacramento Adventure Playground’s regular operating hours are designed for ages 6-15, the Playground opens up for children of all ages to come and play on Community Days. Children under 6 require an adult chaperone. Advance registration is not required. Community Days are held on the second Saturday of the month (except April, December, and January) from 11 AM to 4 PM.
