New kids play space at South Union School opens on Tuesday with a musical event

The winter months can be a challenge for families with young children, what with all the stuck-inside-stir-craziness. The Southborough Recreation Department hopes to help. Starting next week, they open their upstairs space at the old South Union School (map) twice a week to little ones who need a place to play.

The new play space will be open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10:00 am to noon. Developmentally-appropriate play materials will be provided for children ages 6 and under. Activities will include an obstacle course, soft balls, a rice table for pouring and scooping, blocks for building, and various table-top activities.

Admission is free, but parents and caregivers are required to stay and supervise their children. Coffee will be provided for adults, and parents are free to bring peanut-free snacks for their children. The space is for Southborough residents only.

In addition to the regular line-up of activities, the Recreation Department will also use the space to host special events, including at its grand opening on Tuesday, January 8, when local musician Dave Garden will host a kids sing-a-long. You can find all the details in the flyer below.

Happy to see the old school building is alive and well. My sister Margie and I spent for nice years there before going to Woodward. Although we moved to South Carolina, the sunny south, we still have fond memories of the school and Cordaville. Thanks for keeping the old school building going.

Great effort by the Recreation folks to create this activity. Bravo!!!

Perhaps the signage on the building should be updated.
