I wish Middlefield children were able to play with their Durham friends at the Summer Playground program. Since they all attend school together it's pretty hard to tell your child that they cannot go to the same program as their friends just because their not from Durham. I realize it is paid for by Durham taxpayers but maybe you could also offer it to Middlefield children with a little bit of higher rate. Just a suggestion from a mom whose child is not allowed to attend.

Chris, thank you for that comment. We will ask the town about this issue and get back to you.

Hi Chris, Durham Rec. says the reason they can't open the summer playground to children from Middlefield is because they need a high staff-to-child ratio to oversee the 150 children at the Summer Playground. That's the maximum number of kids who can attend and children from Durham have historically filled the program to capacity. That being said, the number of children who do attend varies depending on the day and the weather (the playground is cancelled when it rains). Later in the summer, the town does sometimes open the playground to children from Middlefield if the number of children attending drops. The fee is the same $35 for everyone. The town doesn't want to charge more because there are no refunds if the program is cancelled due to bad weather.
